This article reviews recent research suggesting that individuals with dyslexia benefit enormously from being taught language structure explicitly, and concludes that many teachers are underprepared to teach language processes and structures to children with language-based learning problems. A call is made for an approach to teacher education that emphasizes language knowledge as a foundation for literacy instruction. (Author/PB)
