Recommended practices for teaching foreign language to students with dyslexia
The research question addressed is, What are the recommended practices for teaching foreign language to students with dyslexia? This capstone documents one teacher's transition from traditional teaching methods to a more varied, multi-sensory approach to teaching to better reach her students with dyslexia. The research provided in this capstone discusses the challenges dyslexic students face in learning a foreign language, the challenges teachers face in working with these students and the positive results that the multi-sensory approach can provide to help dyslexic students learn and retain material. Based on the research, this teacher designed lesson plans that use the multi-sensory approach and focus on three areas of learning a foreign language: pronunciation, vocabulary and subject-verb agreement. The capstone concludes with the author's personal reflection and recommendations for foreign language teachers working with dyslexic students.
