An estimated 2.4 million American school-aged children have been identified with learning disabilities, and an additional 15% of students struggle due to unidentified and unaddressed learning, attention and social emotional issues. In pediatric populations, a child with one psychological or neurodevelopmental disorder has an increased risk for having another disorder. For example, approximately 44-59% of children with AD/HD have another psychiatric disorder (e.g., an anxiety disorder). The presence of comorbidities in childhood and adolescence is associated with more difficulties and a higher persistence of symptoms in adulthood.
