NBC NEWS — Hearing or vision problems may be to blame for behavioral problems in children.
According to doctors at Baylor College of Medicine, a simple hearing or vision test may be the solution to bad behavior.
Doctors say children may not know they can't hear or see properly, and their natural reaction is to withdraw from classroom activities. In some cases, parents may think their child has a learning disability.
Experts say a proper diagnosis from a pediatrician is important.
