- Highly gifted students, dyslexia, achievement motivation
The proposed research deals with the issue of extraordinarily gifted adolescents and young adults with a simultaneous learning disability, dyslexia. According to the contemporary foreign state of knowledge, it is this population of the extraordinarily gifted that has been for a long time in a considerably
disadvantaged learning position very often preventing them from being successful not only at school but especially in their lives. The research intends to examine a network of factors affecting academic motivation of these students. The main aim of the project is to examine the key variables that can be held significantly responsible for the condition when these students’ achievement motivation is reduced; when these gifted learners are academically underrated; when their potential is not developed and when they are excluded from educational and social structures even before they can make use of their abilities. It is a serious situation that can have critical social and economic consequences both for these students and the whole society. At the same time, the project wants to map also those factors that can, on the contrary, lead to an increased motivation in this specific population of learners.
