It includes a profound analysis of how the teacher can make the classroom dyslexia-friendly and the lessons more accessible to the dyslexic student. It also attempts to investigate how structured, multisensory teaching, which in turn helps to raise the self-esteem of these children, can help children to develop literacy skills more quicklyIn the contemporary situation of teaching practice, many otherwise effective teachers find themselves unable to deal with the issue of low self-esteem of dyslexic students, and dyslexia still remains a confusing term for most educators despite the fact that an estimated 10-15 percent of the general population has dyslexia. Significantly, teachers and reading specialists are frequently uncertain of the exact definition of dyslexia as well as their legal and ethical responsibilities concerning this learning disability.
