In this webinar, we address some challenges that students with learning differences, such as dyslexia, may endure during their foreign language studies, while offering practical advice on how to offer guidance and assistance. For students with learning differences such as dyslexia, instruction needs to be explicit, direct, and cumulative. Students with learning differences also greatly benefit from a student-centered classroom that is engaging and incorporates multi-modal learning approach to language learning. While the suggestions in this webinar are developed for students with learning differences, they are teaching practices that can support the academic success of all students.
