Several causes: These can be academic, emotional, or behavioral. Academic problems relate to struggling to complete school work or understand the lesson taught. Emotional problems include anxiety, depression, fears or phobias, or mood swings that interfere with learning or social interactions. Behavioral problems can be aggression, class disruption, fighting with peers or teachers, or out of control behavior.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Is a gpa < 3.0 considered as school problems?

Not Necessarily: It depends on the classes and the setting. There are some classes and majors that are extremely demanding and may result in a gpa below 3.0. I would say that a gpa below 2.0 would be stronger evidence of some difficulty. If nothing else it may indicate a mismatch between student and course of study.

School problems... How do you know if they are health related?

Good Physical Exam: If your child is having difficulties in school it is important to start off with a complete physical exam. Also, if your child already has known chronic medical difficulties, these problems can easily interfere with school functioning, so you will want to make sure that any such difficulties are being treated as well as possible.
