  The consequences of learning disabilities are rarely confined to school or work. Many areas of life are affected, including the role of the person with learning disabilities in their family,relationships with friends, non-academic functioning such as sports or dancing, self-esteem andself-confidence to handle daily situations.Individuals who have learning disabilities may be less observant in their social environment, maymisinterpret the social behavior of others at times, and may not learn as easily from experiences or social “cues” as their friends. Some children may exhibit an immaturity and social ineptness due to their learning disability. While seeking acceptance, their eagerness may cause them to trytoo hard in inappropriate ways.Common behavioral characteristics of individuals with learning disabilities:    Inability to interpret environment and social cues    Poor judgment; little thought about logical consequences    Poor impulse control    Need for immediate gratification    Inability to set realistic priorities and goals    Inappropriate conclusions due to deficient reasoning ability    Illogical reasons for actions    Inability to develop meaningful relationships with others    Immature and “bossy” behavior       Low frustration tolerance resulting in disruptive behaviorDirect instruction in social skills training is highly recommended to help individuals withlearning disabilities cope with their innate lack of social perception. Professional help from avariety of disciplines on an ongoing basis may be necessary. Social adjustment and self-esteem in remittedpatients with mood disorders. Serretti A, Cavallini MC, Macciardi F, Namia C, Franchini L, Souery D, Lipp O, Bauwens F,  Smeraldi E, Mendlewicz J.  Source Istituto Scientifico Ospedale San Raffaele, Department of Neuropsychiatric Sciences, Universityof Milan School of Medicine, Via Luigi Prinetti 29, 20127 Milan, Italy. Abstract Mood disorders are characterized by manic and depressive episodes alternating with normalmood. While social function is heavily impaired during episodes of illness, there are conflictingopinions about inter-episode function. The present paper focuses on self-esteem and social  adjustment in remitted mood disorders patients. Patients with mood disorders (99 bipolar and 86major depressive subjects, in remission) were compared with a group of 100 control subjects.The self-esteem scale (SES) and the social adjustment scale (SAS) were used to measure self-esteem and social adjustment, respectively, in both groups of subjects. Patients with mooddisorder exhibited worse social adjustment and lower self-esteem than control subjects. Theseresults strongly confirm previous observations of poor inter-episode function in patients withmooddisorder.
