Abstract [en]

This paper presents a case study carried through with interviews from three remedial

teachers in English working with students with dyslexia at public schools in the south of

Sweden. The aim of the study was to investigate the learning strategies used by

remedial teachers in order to help students with dyslexia to facilitate their learning

process and reach higher grades in English as a foreign language. The results of this

study indicated an agreement between the remedial teachers and previous research

found regarding the use of technological learning aids, the adjustment made for students

with dyslexia as well as using formative assessment. However, the remedial teachers

appeared to show a divided approach to the aspect of focusing on grading requirements

when supporting student with dyslexia in English. Since previous research on the area

of working on grades appeared to be deficient, these finding could indicate a need for

research of effective strategies to support students with dyslexia in developing and

reaching higher grades in English. This study therefore concludes the necessity of

further and wider research within the area of supporting student with dyslexia in the

process of learning a foreign language.
