Help, tips and advice in teaching English. Classroom problems, lesson planning, career advice, staff...

I am currently completing my PGCE in post-compulsary education. I also hold the Trinity Cert.TESOL.
I am currently teaching ESOL to 16 -19 year old dependants of migrant workers, one of which I think may experience dyslexia as a barrier to learning English.
Do you know of any diagnostic assessments for assessing dyslexia in learners who have English as an additional language? I am hoping to use my finding in a conference paper, as well as helping my learner.
Any information on dyslexia and learners with EAL would be greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

You could take a look at www.eltwell.co.uk
. Ann Margaret Smith (founder of the site) is an expert in the field. You should be able to find something there.
All the best; it sounds like a really interesting area to research.
