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.
