I have a B.A. degree in Social Sciences from Bar-Ilan University and a Teaching Certification for Special Education from Gordon College of Education. I am now completing a M.A. degree at Haifa University, in diagnosis and treatment of learning disabilities in children and adults. As part of my studies, I am conducting a study for my thesis under the supervision of my advisors, Prof. Tami Katzir and Dr. Bat-Sheva Hadad. The thesis examines the deficit in naming speed as an indicator of general speed of processing, and as a potential basis for higher-order difficulties not just in reading, but also in reading emotional expressions in faces. Along with my studies, I currently work at a diagnosis center for students with learning disabilities in higher education.

Thesis Title:

The effects of fluency deficits on face recognition and emotional processing in adults with and without dyslexia.
