Sharon Sadan Levy

Sharon is a PhD student in the Department of Learning Disabilities at the Faculty of Education at Haifa University. Her study focuses on mathematical learning difficulties among adults, which have great influence on the academic experience and on everyday life. Sharon is thoroughly examining a new aspect concerning the consistency of the arithmetic performance. She examines whether in addition to the numerical deficits characterizing this population, they also have difficulties recruiting attentional recourses when performing simple arithmetic tasks leading to an inefficient and fluctuant performance. Sharon is hoping that this study will help to better understand mathematical learning difficulties and to develop new interventions programs for improving the arithmetic performance of this population.
