Specific Learning Difficulties

In the rush to set up various digital platforms, employ different tools and assign tasks, the needs of students with SpLDs might be ignored or temporarily delegated to the background. Judit Kormos is a Professor in Second Language Acquisition at Lancaster University, where she is the director of the MA TESOL distance programme. She is the lead educator in the Dyslexia and Foreign Language Teaching MOOC, offered by FutureLearn. In this blog, Judit will give practical ideas for how to assist students with Specific Learning Difficulties in the first stages of online learning; so they can meaningfully and successfully engage with online tasks. It is crucial to ensure that students with SpLDs do not fall behind in the early stages of moving to online learning.

In the USA the Diagnostic and Statistic Manual of Mental Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association uses the label specific learning disorder. In Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom, the terms learning disability and learning difficulty are in use. The labels learning disorder and learning disability are appropriate in the field of biology, medicine and psychology where the focus is on examining the exact nature and cause of SpLDs. In the field of education in the United Kingdom, individuals are often described as having specific learning differences, which reflects the view that if institutions meet the differing needs of students, these learning differences might lose their relevance.

DSM-5 groups various sub-types of SpLDs, such as dyslexia (word-level reading difficulty) and dyscalculia (mathematics disability), under a joint umbrella term of SpLDs. Dyslexia and the Brain: What Does Current Research Tell Us? Click the "References" link above to hide these references.
