Learning Disabilities

Documents to submit in cases involving learning disabilities:

1. Applicant questionnaire : To be filled out by the applicant and signed in the two places marked.
Note: Without the applicant questionnaire, the application will not be considered.

2. Evaluation by a professional qualified to evaluate adults with learning disabilities

  • Make sure that the evaluator has the necessary training for evaluating adults with learning disabilities.
  • The evaluation must be conducted in the mother tongue of the person being evaluated.
  • The applicant must either have been at least 16 years old at the time of the evaluation, and the evaluation must have been conducted within the past five years; or have been at least 18 years old at the time of the evaluation.
  • An applicant with dysgraphia must submit a didactic evaluation of writing ability, as well as background documentation of dysgraphia, or a current evaluation from an occupational therapist.
  • For applicants taking the YAEL test only: an up-to-date evaluation of Hebrew reading and writing performance.

3. Questionnaire for the Evaluator: To be filled out by the evaluator in addition to the professional evaluation. The questionnaire aims to obtain precise information about the applicant’s level of functioning.

  • If you have not already undergone an evaluation, give the evaluator the questionnaire so that he or she will be aware of all the information we need.
  • If you have already been evaluated and the information requested in the questionnaire is included in the evaluator’s report in a clear and well organized fashion, there is no need to go back and request the evaluator to fill out the questionnaire.
  • If you think that some details have been omitted from your evaluation, go back to the evaluator and ask him or her to finish filling out the questionnaire and add any missing information.
  • If you cannot locate the evaluator who evaluated you, send your documents without the questionnaire. The BAMOT staff will review your request on the basis of the available information. In such cases, the staff may ask you to provide additional materials.

4. Previous Evaluations and Background Material

  • If you have undergone more than one evaluation, please send all evaluation reports.
  • It is important that we receive information about your level of functioning in elementary school (grades 1-6). In addition to your evaluations, we would like to receive other background material that documents difficulties you experienced during that period. This background material is particularly important if you were first evaluated in middle school or later.

Examples of documents and background materials that should be sent include:

  • Summaries of developmental therapies (occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, etc.)
  • Documentation of remedial instruction.
  • Elementary school report cards (report card should indicate which grade you were in)
  • Secondary school report cards (report card should indicate which grade you were in)
  • Opinions of teachers and other professionals (use the Questionnaire for Teachers)
