2.1 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 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.
  • An applicant evaluated before the age of 16 must undergo another evaluation in order to request special test accommodations for the PET.
  • An applicant with dysgraphia must attach documentation demonstrating that the problem has existed from an early age (including evaluations from occupational therapists, evaluations of learning disabilities, and reports from teachers, remedial teachers, or other caregivers, testifying to the dysgraphia), as well as a current evaluation, as described in the Questionnaire for the Evaluator.

2.2 Questionnaire for the Evaluator: To be filled out by the evaluator.
In addition to providing a framework for 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.

2.3 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 may include summaries of developmental therapies, documentation of remedial education, and report cards that mention various problems that arose during school. 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.)
  • 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 (the Questionnaire for Teachers may be used)
  • Medical reports, if any
  • Report showing which accommodations you received for the Bagrut exams (in cases of dysgraphia)
