Dyslexia Social Problems

  • About 30% of children with dyslexia also have at least a mild form of AD/HD, consequently other social problems arise.
  • Children may be less organized than their peers
  • Children may have less self-control, and more difficulty conforming to social rules than their peers. Such behaviors may be alienating to others.
  • Because of their difficulty with language, they may unintentionally foster mis-communications with others, and it may be a turn-off to peers.
  • Students who feel badly about themselves may not have the social confidence or skill to seek and maintain friendships, and may become withdrawn from friends and family.
