In brief: Many causes

Cognitive problems are quite different than social problems.
The causes for each or both are many. There can be physical conditions as well as emotional disorders. Without knowing more precisely which problems you are referring to, it is difficult to give a proper answer. I would start with discussing the concerns with the child's pediatrician.
