This book addresses specific learning difficulties in reading and spelling -
developmental dyslexia. Set in the cross-linguistic context, it presents issues
surrounding dyslexia from the perspective of a foreign language teacher. It is
intended to serve as a reference book for those involved in foreign language
teaching, including experienced in-service teachers and novice teachers, as well
as teacher trainers and trainees. It offers an up-to-date and reader-friendly study
of the mechanisms of dyslexia and an overview of the current research on the
disorder, in theoretical and practical terms. Its aim is to help teachers tackle one
of the many challenges they face in the modern classroom: the organization of
an effective foreign language teaching process for students with dyslexia.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Language Acquisition

Written In: English (eng )
