Mixed disorders of scholastic skills

In ICD-10, this is specified as an ill-defined and inadequately conceptualized, but necessary residual, category of disorders in which both arithmetical and reading or spelling skills can be significantly impaired, and in which the disorder cannot be explained in terms of general mental retardation or inadequate schooling. This category covers disorders that meet the criteria of 'Specific disorder of arithmetical skills' (F81.2) and either 'Specific reading disorder' (F81.0) or 'Specific spelling disorder' (F81.1). As has been explained earlier, in the case of a mixed disorder of scholastic skills, it is specific arithmetical disorder that seems to dominate both in severity and with respect to associated psychopathological features.
