How are learning disabilities linked to ADHD?

ANSWER

Around half of children with ADHD also have a learning disability. Many kids with learning disabilities also get into trouble at school for not listening, not finishing work, or being disorganized. Like ADHD, a learning disability doesn't affect intelligence, but can make kids lag behind others in school and at work.
