The current investigation was conducted to explore the relationship between incomplete hemispheric dominance (lateralization) and learning difficulties (dyslexia) among children. Quasi experimental research design was used. A sample of 50 children was drawn by using non-probability purposive sampling technique, in which 25 children with learning difficulties (dyslexics) and 25 control children were taken. Bangor dyslexia test was administered in order to identify the children with learning difficulties and Harris Test of lateral dominance was administered to assess the hemispheric dominance of children. Pearson Product Moment correlation was used to evaluate the relationship. The findings indicate that there appears a significant relationship between incomplete hemispheric dominance and learning difficulties (dyslexia).
