Summary

Approximately 6% of children in the US have a disability, and many of these children receive special education services. Two of the most common disorders seen in schools are learning disabilities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Both of these disorders have neurological underpinnings, and as such deserve attention to better understand the link between the functioning of the brain, and how these disorders impact school performance. Further, anxiety disorders have been found to be one of the most widespread mental health concerns for children and adolescents, and understanding how anxiety influences academic performance in children with learning disabilities will help inform future research and intervention. The goal of this study is to better understand this link in order to provide better treatment options for students with these disorders.
