Other children need help with focus, concentration and organisation of thinking and learning, either in class or at home.
Some children display several symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Some children display several symptoms of Dyslexia, whether or not they fulfil all the criteria for a diagnosis.
They may lack the confidence in their ability and have low self esteem.
They may have unsympathetic teachers who affect their school work negatively.

They may be suffering from School Phobia and so may be behind with their work, because of infrequent attendance.
