Fellow Gives Presentation on Working with Students with Learning Differences

English Language Fellow Rosa David and Cultural Affairs Specialist Brenda Bernaldez participated in a three-day conference,  “ETC 2017 Educate for Life,” in Durango, Mexico. Rosa and Brenda were plenary speakers and also participated on an expert panel that focused on inclusion in the foreign language classroom.

Their plenary explored how students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Specific Language Impairment, and ADHD learn a language, and what issues they have in the English language classroom. The presentation also offered concrete advice on how to create a learning environment to support all students, including teaching strategies and ways to incorporate technology as a supportive tool. Teachers are often ill equipped to support students with learning differences, making it imperative that educators learn more about this subject.
