Ministry: French students with special needs
The Ministry has released a new resource supporting the French language curriculum, titled Including students with special education needs in French as a second language programs: A guide for Ontario Schools.
It is hard enough to find resources on teaching French, let alone French students with special needs.
I took a quick look and the Ebsco journal databases included 3 fairly recent articles:
- Joy, R., & Murphy, E. (2012). The inclusion of children with special educational needs in an intensive French as a second language program: From theory to practice. Canadian Journal of Education, 35(1), 102-119.
