Diagnostic Assessment Service
Diagnostic assessments can be arranged for students who think they may have a specific learning difference (such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia), or who require Colour Vision testing. We require a contribution from students towards the cost of these services. The contribution amounts to approximately one sixth of the total cost.

About the Diagnostic Assessment Service
Diagnostic assessments can be arranged for students who think they may have a specific learning difference (such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia), or for a Colour Vision test. The assessments are carried out by external diagnosticians and they can take up to two hours, including regular rest breaks. If you are having a diagnostic assessment for a specific learning difference you will be able to have the assessment on campus at Student Advice. If you are having a Colour Vision test, your assessment will take place off campus.
The assessment is mostly funded by BGU’s Learning Fund, however we ask you to make a contribution. The diagnostician will provide you with a diagnostic report which may include recommendations for reasonable adjustments which can be circulated to relevant staff members (with your permission).
The University will not automatically receive a copy of your diagnostic report, so you must provide Student Advice with a copy of your report if you would like additional support to be put in place. The report can also be used as evidence for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA).
