Ian Jedlica: Helping Students with Learning Disabilities (ASD)


DOI 10.51313/alumni-2020-8

Abstract: Integration in education has brought students with learning disabilities into the forefront of everyday teaching in Hungary. Among many types of disadvantaged students, for example, those with ADHD, ODD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, social, economic and linguistic disadvantages, there are also those who suffer from ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). This paper uses research from many papers, including those from Peter Moran of the British Council and Jennifer Reppond, to discover basic principles in how to deal with and teach this type of student in the foreign language classroom. It then moves on to show how these principles helped to create awareness of the problems involved and give some workable practices within the classroom to make an acceptable learning environment for one particular student with ASD.
