Book Summary:

The Second Language Learning Processes of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties is the only recent book available to offer a detailed and in-depth discussion of the second language learning processes of students with specific learning difficulties (SpLDs). It summarizes research advances in the fields of cognitive and educational psychology and integrates them with recent studies in the area of second language acquisition (SLA). Thus the book is relevant not only to readers who are particularly interested in the role of specific learning difficulties in learning additional languages, but also to those who would like to understand how individual differences in cognitive functioning influence SLA. The book focuses on four important areas that are particularly relevant for language learners with SpLDs: the processes of SLA in general and the development of reading skills in particular, the effectiveness of pedagogical programs, the assessment of the language competence of students with SpLDs and identifying SpLDs in another language. The book also views learners with SpLDs in their social and educational contexts and elaborates how the barriers in these contexts can affect their language learning processes. This is an excellent resource for language teachers, students, and researchers in the areas of second language acquisition and applied linguistics.

Book Summary:

This edited volume discusses the theoretical, ethical and practical considerations involved in the assessment of Second Language Learners (SLLs) with Specific Language Learning Disorders (SpLD), such as dyslexia and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, and with other disabilities like visual and hearing impairments. The volume contains 14 chapters. These explore various theoretical models and research findings that identify and evaluate the language and special needs of SLLs with SpLD and other disabilities and evaluate the effectiveness of the accommodation practices employed so far. The studies involve both high-stakes tests and classroom-based assessments conducted by professionals and researchers working in the areas of psychology, special education and second/foreign language testing and assessment from various countries around the globe, including the USA, Canada, New Zealand and European countries such as Italy, UK, Greece, Germany, and Slovenia. The volume accommodates high-quality submissions that cover a gap in a research area that has long been in need of theoretical and empirical attention. This volume will become a valuable point of reference and springboard for future research initiatives.

Book Summary:

The insights, techniques and skills needed to understand why some adult students have difficulties with learning a second language are presented in this book. The author′s premise is that what appears on the surface is often not the real source of the learner′s difficulty. A correct diagnosis of the cause of the problem is important if intervention is to prove effective. The book presents a large number of theories and models of learning, and covers areas including: learning styles and personality dispositions; student motivation, self-efficacy and anxiety; and how to interview students.

Book Summary:

This unique guide for special education teachers, teachers of English language learners, and other practitioners provides the foundational information needed to determine whether the language difficulties experienced by English language learners (ELLs) result from the processes and stages of learning a second language or from a learning disability (LD). The book addresses the following critical factors in detail: determining whether an ELL's struggles with reading in English are due to LD or language acquisition; characteristics of language acquisition that can mirror LD; different types of ELLS and why these differences are important; considering a student's "opportunity to learn" when determining whether he or she may have LD; common misconceptions and realities about ELLs and the second language acquisition process; ways that learning to read in English as a second or additional language differ from learning to read English as a first language, and how the differences can be confusing for ELLs; how schools can establish structure to facilitate the process of distinguishing between language acquisition and LD; how families are involved in the process; guidelines for determining which ELLs should be referred for evaluation; and what it means to use an ecological framework to determine whether ELLs have LD.

Book Summary:

Whether we grow up with one, two, or several languages during our early years of life, many of us will learn a second, foreign, or heritage language in later years. The field of Second language acquisition (SLA, for short) investigates the human capacity to learn additional languages in late childhood, adolescence, or adulthood, after the first language --in the case of monolinguals-- or languages --in the case of bilinguals-- have already been acquired. Understanding Second Language Acquisition offers a wide-encompassing survey of this burgeoning field, its accumulated findings and proposed theories, its developed research paradigms, and its pending questions for the future. The book zooms in and out of universal, individual, and social forces, in each case evaluating the research findings that have been generated across diverse naturalistic and formal contexts for second language acquisition. It assumes no background in SLA and provides helpful chapter-by-chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading. Ideal as a textbook for students of applied linguistics, foreign language education, TESOL, and education, it is also recommended for students of linguistics, developmental psycholinguistics, psychology, and cognitive science.
