Children's Study Initiative

Devoted to Children with Learning Disabilities

Children with learning disorders are at higher risk for social skills difficulties, expressive and receptive language disorders, attentional problems, anxiety, disruptive behaviour disorders and depressive disorders. Upto 25% of children with reading disorder are found to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Academic stress can lead to poor self esteem and can cause adjustment disorders as well as somatoform disorders, particularly in older children.
