Foreign Language Learning Disability and Linguistics

Recently we have discovered that some of the students in our introductory
linguistics course are taking it because they have been exempted from the
university language requirement as a result of a diagnosis of _foreign language
learning disability_. The Dean has placed them in our course as a substitute
for the requirement. Anything that gets students into linguistics courses is,
naturally, delightful, but we are wondering about this practice. Does anyone
have any information about it? Is it a standard procedure at other
institutions?
