Summary/Abstract: Communicative language teaching that has been popular since the mid-70s situates a learner in the centre of scientific and research attention. The consequence of that is the growing importance of learner’s autonomy during the process of teaching and learning a foreign language. On the other hand, a teacher is still an important element of the glottodidactic process – it is the teacher who is obliged to take care of the learner’s development and progress and to support him or her in it. That is, though, connected with the individual approach to teaching, especially in relation to some more demanding groups of school students. The problem of learner’s autonomy and of special educational needs is especially important for two school students groups that more and more often occur on the lessons of English, i.e. dyslectic students and the ones suffering from the Asperger syndrome. For both groups of students individual treatment and approach is crucial, but the specificity of both of them quite often goes beyond the knowledge a teacher, especially the young, non-experienced one, possesses.
