Abstract

The study aims to provide a descriptive account of the training needs of EFL teachers who face the challenge of teaching dyslexic students within the mainstream classroom in primary education. A total of ninety-four EFL teachers employed in Northern Greece participated in the pilot study. A questionnaire, constructed on the basis of a review of the relevant literature was used. The findings indicated that the teachers had only limited awareness in dealing with dyslexic student in the EFL classroom. However, they stated their interest for INSET courses in order to become equipped with further knowledge and skills and be able to teach dyslexic students more effectively in an inclusive way. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
