That behavior problems tend to accompany the child with learning disabilities is a proposition which is not in dispute. The frustration of the child who cannot meet the demands placed on him by his environment, coupled with his own awareness that he is not making the grade, leads to an array of problems which are often talked about in terms such as poor self concept, low self esteem, faulty social perception and lack of peer acceptance (Bryan, 1978).
