Why does learning disabilities sometimes cause behavior problems?
Children with learning disabilities often have behavior problems. They might have average or above average intelligence, but still have difficulty learning what comes easily to others. These children may be frustrated, lashing out in anger. Some research says children with learning disabilities may sometimes also have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This problem makes it hard for them to concentrate and stay focused on tasks. This makes a learning disability even harder to deal with for children with both. A child with a learning disability and an attention problem will need to be treated for both.
