Not all Children with Dyslexia have behavioral problems, but many times we will hear of children who are acting out, refusing to do work, or disturbing other children. These children may be labeled “trouble makers” or diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Some are put on medication to control their behavior.
It’s only when we dig deeper that we discover clues to a possible learning issue such as dyslexia. So what should parents, teachers, and pediatricians look for to determine if the cause of apparent behavioral problems is actually a leaning problem. In this video we discuss some of the reasons that children with dyslexia may show behavioral problems. These include:
- Frustration with work that they don’t understand.
- Boredom because they don’t feel involved in the schoolwork.
- Poor self-esteem from always struggling with schoolwork.
