TESOL Greece 

Specific Learning Differences Colloquium

with the support of


“Dare To Be Different: Learn, Develop, Succeed”

24 – 25 November, 2018

TESOL Greece with the support of IATEFL Inclusive Practices and Special Educational Needs (IPSEN) SIG and BELTA Belgium brings you the International Colloquium on Specific Learning Differences: “Dare To Be Different: Learn, Develop, Succeed“.

Colloquium Objectives

TESOL Greece and the Specific Learning Differences Special Interest Group (SpLDs SIG) aim to inform, support and empower English Language Teaching professionals who are faced with the challenge of teaching learners with a variety of specific learning differences.

The Colloquium Committee welcomes SpLDs professionals specialised in teaching English as a Foreign Language to Dare to Be Different and looks forward to submissions which will create a stimulating program addressing the following areas:
Inclusive Practices 
Emotional & Social Consequences
Parents’ Role. 

We encourage submissions which will discuss and focus on developing the strengths and interests of the learners and improve the quality of learning.

Important information
Please note that a professional presentation should not be used to advance a book, publisher, author, course or examination. TESOL Greece Members are particularly sensitive to the distinction between commercial and professional presentations.

Types of proposals

A Practice-Oriented presentation, which shows, rather than tells. The presenter helps participants solve a problem or develop a specific technique through a series of structured hands-on activities.

Responsibilities of presenters
• All presenters will refrain from changing the content of their session once it has been approved.
