Using ICT to overcome the barrier of Dyslexia in the MFL classroom

Presented by: Siobhán Daly

This would focus on making foreign language learning accessible for students with dyslexia. Unfortunately dyslexia accounts for many students seeking an exemption from the language. I have completed a thesis based on this, which was awarded a first class honours. I wish to equip teachers with the ICT tools to overcome the barrier of dyslexia in the foreign language classroom. I believe that this will be of great benefit to both educators and learners of the language.
