Either ADHD or LD. Children with ADHD may struggle with working memory — making memorizing vocab words difficult — and may have difficulty focusing on a piece of text long enough to get through it without errors. However, children with dyslexia may also have struggle to spell words correctly, and may find reading difficult — even with adequate focus. It’s important in this case to fully assess the child’s condition, both inside and outside of school, to get an accurate diagnosis.
