Innovative Practices 2016 on Education and ICT
English skills for persons with learning difficulties
“You don’t have to wait for others, for specialists or for teachers, because the self-help methods give you the freedom of learning, in your own way, with your own material and self-confidence.”
|Name of Innovative Practice:||Supplemental Self-Help in English as a Foreign Language for Learners with Specific Learning Differences (SUPEFL)|
GNW Ltd is part of a consortium with 6 other European partners (with the German partner English at Work GmbH as the leader) that are working on a project entitled SUPEFL. This project has been funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union. The goal of the project is to develop self-help Open Educational Resources (OER) for learners of English with special needs (specific learning difficulties, dyslexia, ADHD, autism spectrum, etc.) in one or more of the following areas: reading, writing, speaking, listening, memory, motivation and/or learning in general. The training guidelines developed by GNW Ltd will be used as a basis for the creation of separate self-help guides as well as establish a SUPEFL portal and platform for learners with special needs. The objective of this portal is to provide learners of English with specific tools and techniques that they can readily implement to improve their skills and overall competence in the specific area(s) of need.
