To what extent is this role being fulfilled? • The issues that can stem from new and sometimes controversial approaches. Why does dyslexia generate the anxiety and the emotional fervour that can be felt in debates on new approaches? • How can these issues be resolved to the satisfaction of the different groups which may each have different agendas and priorities?

Suggest that the research indicates that the problems dyslexic students experience in learning a foreign language are closely related to written and oral skills in their mother tongue, and that although most language teachers and schools acknowledge that dyslexic students might have difficulties learning a foreign language, the policy of inclusion means that little special provision is made for them in language classes and that many language teachers are unsure how to best teach them.
