    The teacher is an expert in the provision of educational work, that should be qualified to teach also students with dyslexia. Teacher's knowledge of the causes and forms of dyslexia and ways of educating students with dyslexia is important to effectively adapt teaching methods. Therefore a major part of this thesis work is devoted to those aspects. There are also other factors exposed (family, school environment, collaboration with parents), which significantly contribute to providing the best possible conditions for teaching students with dyslexia. More discussions on dyslexia can be found only in recent years, so the question arises about the possibilities of quality knowledge in education as well as in programs of continuing training. For this purpose a qualitative analysis of old and new (Bologna) study program has been made. It showed that the faculty devotes too little time to training future teachers to teach children with dyslexia. A Catalog of continuing education and training for professionals in education offers very few opportunities to acquire knowledge in this area. The empirical part of the thesis shows findings of survey, which gave responses of the 81 teachers and 7 pupils gained through group interviews. Most teachers has already taught students with dyslexia and the majority has expressed that at the time of their study they had not acquired enough knowledge about dyslexia. In this context, it is also reasonable to note that the majority of teachers have desire for additional education. Teachers with experience of teaching students with dyslexia did not significantly differ in their knowledge of the strong and weak areas of learning. Also teachers with higher titles didn't significantly differ in knowledge of inclusion and strategies of teaching students with dyslexia concept. The most obvious conclusion during interviews was that students who are familiar with the causes of their problems, are much less burdened and more skilled in various learning strategies.
