People with learning disabilities, however, face greater difficulty in learning foreign languages. For this reason, they should be trained by properly qualified teachers with specialized knowledge in the education of people with learning disabilities. The TuDOrs project focuses on this important objective, the specialized education of foreign language teachers in the education of people with learning disabilities.
