Educators need to be properly trained and aware of how to meet the needs of these students. The lack of such leads to failure. Students fail because they are afflicted by a disability that forces them to learn in unconventional ways. Teachers fail because they do not embrace the challenge brought about by the diversity of the situation. Students, all over the world, enter into a classroom environment all with a common purpose.
Dyslexia is a congenital disorder characterized by unexpected difficulty learning to decode and spell words in relation to one’s verbal intelligence, motivation, and educational opportunities (Gray E. S, 2008). People have many misconceptions regarding dyslexia which includes visual impairment, low IQ, dyslexia is curable, and this learning disability affects males more often than females. Indicators of dyslexia change over time since it is a process of developmental. It is difficult to identify children with dyslexia; however it becomes more prominent as they progress in school. Experts agree that dyslexia is a learning disability that affects language processing and that it does not occur because of low intelligence, lack of motivation, poor instruction, vision, or hearing problems, cultural disadvantages, or other extrinsic.

Dina is a student whose challenges in the classroom clearly exemplify how misdiagnosis can occur, because her multilingualism and diverse cultural background present a challenge for her teacher. While a diagnosis that entitles one to special education services can be beneficial for many students, it can be disadvantageous to those who are not actually disabled. Many students receive “labels” that they do not feel they deserve (Arnold and Lassman, 2003), and many students placed in the special education system suffer from low expectations and are not pushed to reach their maximum potential. This is a big issue in our increasingly diverse society, and the high incidence of pedagogically induced disabilities must be addressed. There are a number of possible causes behind the amount of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students in the special education system.
