The use of e-learning in education has seen an unprecedented increase, especially in the case of second language (L2) learning. However, little attention has been devoted to advanced technology-based approaches to teaching English to dyslexic students. Much progress has been made, in recent years, across different research specialties, but the use of brain imaging, in particular, has provided new perspectives on understanding and helping cope with learning disorders. The present paper focuses on evaluating different approaches to language learning by dyslexic people with the aim of improving web-based e-learning environments. As the peripheral vision in dyslexics is more accurate than in non-dyslexics, our research project takes into consideration the incidence of colors and visual stimuli in supporting cognitive attitude of dyslexics, with the aim to design a platform providing benefits not only for dyslexic but also for general users.
