Abstract
The study looks into the multifaceted repercussions of dyslexia on children’s daily lives, highlighting the crucial importance of parental, societal, and educational contexts. The research, which was carried out across various tiers in India, emphasizes the variety of services and support systems accessible to parents of dyslexic children. The importance of parental responses and support in moulding dyslexic children’s self-esteem and psychological well-being is emphasized. In the realm of dyslexia, 30 people were interviewed, including parents, professors, doctors, and children. Furthermore, the study highlights differences in the perception and management of dyslexia among Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 cities in India. Tier 1 parents are more proactive in obtaining support for their children, while Tier 2 and Tier 3 parents frequently struggle with insufficient knowledge and financial constraints, limiting their ability to effectively address their child’s needs. This paper proposes a holistic view of India’s dyslexia ecosystem, emphasizing the interdependence of stakeholders such as parents, researchers, educational institutions, and politicians.
