Dyslexia Teacher Resume

Everybody has the right to become educated. However, not all fall in the same category with reference to intelligence and skills. We usually see some children facing certain physical or mental challenges because of which they are made to study in special schools. For example, blind children study in a school for the blind, mentally challenged in a school developed specially for them, etc. One such challenging state of mind is dyslexia. Children suffering from dyslexia are as other normal children, but they do differ from them in certain scenarios. Although they study in normal schools, they need specific guidance and a little more assistance than other normal children. We might not find special schools for these children, but definitely get to see dyslexia teachers. The dyslexia teacher resume sample given above will help you to understand the same further. However, knowing a little about dyslexia is a must before moving ahead.


Dyslexia is a learning disorder which makes it difficult for an individual to read, write, and learn. A person suffering from this disorder finds it difficult to read and write where he usually writes reverse alphabets, makes rigorous spelling mistakes, etc. With a little more assistance and special efforts, dyslexics can be brought close to normal and some can actually read and write as any other normal student. Lack of attention and reading disability is the most common problem seen in dyslexics.

Teachers working with such students should make sure that they teach them in a way that interests and helps them to retain their attention. Teachers should also make sure that they deal with them with extreme care.

Let us read the resume sample given below to understand the job role further.
