Selecting, Adapting and Designing Materials for Learners with Dyslexia

In this practical workshop, we will consider implications for the selection and design of materials such as texts, exercises and tests suitable for dyslexic learners of English. We will look at examples of available dyslexic-friendly ELT materials and will also consider how we as teachers can adapt existing materials and produce our own.


Jon Hird is based in Oxford, UK, where he divides his time between teaching English at the University of Oxford, teacher training and writing ELT materials. Jon has a particular interest in Grammar, English for Academic Purposes and dyslexia and learning English. He has written and contributed to a number of ELT publications, including the B1 level of the brand new course book series ‘Language Hub’ and has written and adapted a range of ELT material for learners with dyslexia.
