On March 2020, EGDAL- The Israeli Association of Learning Disabilities Experts, together with the support of the Edmond J. Safra Brain Research Center for the Study Of Learning Disabilities , hosted the annual EGDAL conference in the subject of Learning disabilities in the Arabic language.This year conference was limited in terms of attendees in light of the Ministry of Health's directives concerning the Corona virus restrictions. The responses were very enthusiastic by those present. One of the comments was: "The conference was excellent, the research presented was up-to-date and significant, ... On Women's Day (the day the conference was held) we saw that all the researchers were women ... It doesn't surprise me" This year theme was preschool children: how to develop their reading skills and the impact of screens on young children's brains. Doctoral dissertations were also presented in mathematics and language skills.
