Mental health and wellbeing
Sometimes it can be challenging coping with a learning difficulty. It can affect how a person feels about themself.
Children and young people with learning difficulties might experience:
- Low self esteem
- Lack of motivation
- Obsessive behaviours
- Difficulty making/keeping friendships
If you’re feeling any of these, it’s important to share these feelings with your parents, carer or a trusted adult. If your child is experiencing any of these, ask for help from your GP.
