The Art of Capturing Human Learning

The Edmond J. Safra Brain Research Center for the Study of Learning Disabilities

Our center is dedicated to exploring the fascinating intersection of the mind, the brain, culture, and education. We focus on the unique developmental challenges and opportunities faced by Hebrew- and Arabic-speaking children and adults.

Our multi-cultural center is a beacon of hope for shared living that celebrates human diversity

By pooling resources and expertise, our researchers, who come from different academic backgrounds, jointly develop effective interventions tailored to the specific needs of all children in the region.

We offer comprehensive resources on learning disabilities in Semitic languages that combine the latest research from the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and education.

The Longitudinal Study

Tracking Israeli Children’s Development from Kindergarten to the Sixth Grade

We are proud to lead one of the most extensive developmental studies on thousands of Hebrew- and Arabic-speaking children.
