I'm looking for new ways to address my pupils' weaknesses.

I'm currently into a program to improve my teaching abilities with children afflicted by some form of cognitive deficit. It's rather wide-ranging, since it includes considering impairments induced by autistic spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, dyslexia, and various learning disorder.
I'm an ESL teacher, and so far the program hasn't really provided me with lots of ways or ideas to actually improve my learning techniques in that context. I'm teaching a small group of kids with such difficulties once a week, and I have trouble to come up with original and efficient ways of teaching them the language. I mean, I have trouble to adapt my teaching. I don't think that I significantly change what I usually do.
I'd like to really provide something that would make a difference for all of us in the class, so teachers, parents, kids, please tell me what is sensible to do to let my pupils make the most of it.
