Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities

TMA hosted neuropsychologist Maia Matchavariani. The meeting was held at the initiative of the students, and the guest spoke to the students about such actual issues as dyslexia and learning disabilities.

Dyslexia is a neurobiological condition that refers to learning disabilities and is also associated with difficulty concentrating short-term memory, and organization. At the meeting, it was discussed when and by what symptoms dyslexia can be recognized, taking into account the level of intelligence and socio-cultural factors. Students received information about different forms of dyslexia, how it expresses at different ages, and when to refer to a specialist.

"I received very necessary information. I am glad that the professional speaker was selected by the Academy and relevant information was shared with the students. I am interested in this issue and I hope that in the future I will have the opportunity to discuss this topic in even deeper detail" - noted TMA student Aleksandre Kanchaveli.

TMA's one of the main priorities is to identify student’s needs and respond to them in a timely manner through carrying out appropriate measures. Academy, as a student-oriented institution, has developed mechanisms and services for academic, psychological and career support.
