Is this a disorder?
My younger brother has had decreasing performance in school over the past six months. During this time, he has become more irritable and irresponsible, has changed his group of friends, and has had decreasing personal hygiene. He was previously a high-achieving student, but his grades have slipped to the extent that he is failing several courses. Is this some kind of disorder that has been developed? How can i help him ?
