In brief: Possibly

Depending of the level of impairment of a learning disorder, there may be significant stress that can trigger or exacerbate psychiatric disorders such as anxiety or depression.
In addition, psychiatric disorders such as adhd may masquerade as learning disorders.

In brief: Learning Disorders

Some children, if not all, are aware of their own difficulties in school.
This awareness can lead to low self-esteem, poor self-concept, and poor self-confidence. If not treated, anxiety and/or depression may ensue. One must keep an eye on a child identified for having a learning disorder.
