Objective: The purpose of the present research was to examine the effectiveness of social skills training on self-esteem and self-concept in dyslexic students.

Methods & Materials: The statistical population consisted of all dyslexic students in 3rd and 4th grade in Rasht, from among which a sample of 24 students were selected through convenience sampling. They were then equally assigned to two (control and experiment) groups. This was a quasi-experimental study with a pre-test/post-test design and control group. To collect data, ‘Karami-Nouri & Moradi’s dyslexia scale (2008), Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (1974), Cooper-Smith’s self-concept scale (1967) and Beck’s self-esteem scale (1987) were used. The social skills training program was conducted for the experimental group in eight sessions in a period of two months.

Results: Analysis of covariance showed that social skills training significantly affected all the dimensions of self-esteem and all the dimensions of self-concept (p<0.001), expect for the moral component.

Conclusion: These results have clinical implications for the prevention and improvement of self-esteem and self-concept among dyslexic students.
