How to help a child who is dyslexic with very low self esteem.

I have a young boy aged 8 at my primary school, who has not been officially diagnosed with dyslexia but has many signs of it. He has such low self esteem and is always saying he is stupid and not good at anything. Although he gets lots of praise from myself and the class teacher he is still very despondent about himself.

Does anyone have any ideas of how I can help him.
