This book is intended to help language teachers to work effectively and
successfully with students who have specific learning differences (SpLD) such
as dyslexia. The book takes an inclusive and practical approach to language
teaching and encourages teachers to consider the effects that an SpLD could
have on a language learner. It suggests strategies that can be implemented to
enable learners to succeed both in the classroom and in formal assessment.
The book places issues of language teaching for learners with an SpLD in a
broad educational context and, in addition to practical advice on methodologies
and classroom management, also discusses discourses of the field, the
identification of SpLDs and facilitating progression.
