Attention deficit hyper disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia both hamper the learning ability of children in the classroom. An estimated 15.99% of dyslexic children are found in every classroom, and 5.60% of the children have ADHD. The study was undertaken to investigate the correlation between dyslexia and ADHD in school-going children. A survey method was used, and 963 students were selected through random sampling technique. The screening and diagnostic test of Dyslexia (SDTD-J) test by Dr. Khan Zeenat and S. B. Dandegaonkar was used for identifying the percentage of dyslexic children in the classroom, and James E. Gilliam test was used for identifying the percentage of ADHD children in the classroom. The findings also showed that 35.06% of dyslexic children also have ADHD problems.
