Children who have learning disabilities often struggle with their emotional well being due to the stress related to their disability. Having a disability makes a person more likely to experience repeated failure educationally and this experience can take a toll.
In children with learning disabilities it can be common to have emotional issues including low self esteem, difficulty in peer relationships, worry, anger or frustration and behavioral issues. Some children can struggle with psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse or juvenile delinquency.
