Co-occurring disorders

Ten to 25% of individuals with Learning Disorders have associated problems such as Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Communication Disorders such as Mixed Receptive-Expressive Disorder should also be considered. It's important to differentiate Learning Disorders from academic difficulties due to lack of opportunity, poor teaching, cultural factors, inadequate curriculum, or family problems.
