Foreign Language Teachers' Preparedness to Cater for Special Educational Needs of Learners with Dyslexia: A Conceptual Framework
Nijakowska, Joanna
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v34 n2 p189-203 2019
The aim of this paper is to problematize the concept of foreign language (FL) teacher self-reported preparedness to respond to the special educational needs of FL learners with dyslexia by employing appropriate inclusive teaching practices. The paper shortly characterises dyslexia and then elaborates on the components of preparedness, namely, teacher knowledge on dyslexia and self-efficacy in implementing inclusive instructional practices with dyslexic learners as well as attitude to inclusion. The paper discusses the influence of a number of demographic variables on FL teachers' beliefs relating to their preparedness to include dyslexic learners and suggests implications for teacher training and further research on FL teacher education on dyslexia, special educational needs (SEN) and inclusive instructional practices.
