Pearson correlation analysis showed that there was no significant relationship between the level of knowledge readiness with the level of attitude readiness of teachers in mainstream schools in implementing teaching to students with dyslexic characteristics, r (38) = 0.209, p> 0.05. Conclusions from the study indicate that not necessarily teachers who have a high knowledge of dyslexia will be positive and fully prepared in their teaching of students with dyslexic characteristics.
