The present study, which is part of a wider research, aims at defining the degree of influence of the socioeconomic status and educational level of family (father’s – mother’s) on the development of self-concept of dyslexic students. It took place , last year, at the Greek Primary School, in 120 students aged between 10 to 12 years old. Self-concept is defined as the ensemble of knowledge, convictions, perceptions and feelings one has for himself. The phenomenon of dyslexia is considered to be mostly the problem of elaboration of written speech.

For the purpose of the study was used the Makri-Mpotsari’s instrument (Π.A.T.E.M. II, 2001) based on S.Harter’s Self Perception Profile for children (1985), standardized at the Greek student population. The axons of the instrument, which constructing the meaning of self concept, refers to the following areas: a) school achievement, b) relationships with peers, c) athletic competence d) physical appearance e) behavior and f) self-esteem.

Findings reveal that there is statistically significant difference among dyslexic students who have higher degree of influence of the socioeconomic status and educational level of family to those who do not have.
