Taleem Center holds the first Arabic language Dyslexia Awareness Workshop at Old Zayed University

February 27, 2014 3:50 pm

“I Learn Differently” initiative by Taleem Center, the newly established Abu-Dhabi based learning disabilities educational center is getting a great momentum within the local community. Ms. Shereen Al Nowais, the founder and CEO of Taleem Center stated in many occasions that her main objective is to help sustain the awareness on learning disabilities at home, at school and among the members of the community at large.

One of the key focus of Ms. Shereen Al Nowais’ campaign is to enhance the understanding of dyslexia and learning disabilities in Arabic language. Dyslexia tests, diagnosis tools, evaluation techniques and assessment programmes are being developed by academics and researchers from various Arab countries including Jordan, Kuwait, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. These protocols are usually patterned after established English language learning disabilities techniques but adapted to the specifics of Arabic language for the Gulf region, Levant or Maghreb.

Taleem Center is hosting on February 26, 2014 from 6.00 pm to 8.30pm, the first Arabic Language dyslexia and dyscalculia workshop at Old Zayed University building, the home of the Applied Technology High School and the Secondary High School.

Mr. Yousif Ghanem and Mr. Ahmad Saleh, two veteran special education experts from Jordan will share their decades of research, teachings and case studies on learning disabilities for Khaleeji learners, families and educators.

The workshop will also feature an insight into the life of an adult with learning disabilities presented by Mr. Yousef Said.
