Disorders Diagnosed During Childhood

Many disorders are diagnosed during childhood.  In addition to the distress and impaired functioning experienced by adults, children are at particular risk of developing comorbid disorders during critical periods of development. Many aspects of behavior, including effective social skills, organizational skills, self-schema, and body image are largely established at early ages of development.  Therefore, it is of great importance that accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment occur as soon as possible. In addition, it is always important to ensure that parents and other family members are involved as they often experience anxiety and other aversive experiences out of their concern for the behaviorally challenged child.

Childhood disorders or symptoms may include:

  • Aggression & anger (Oppositional Defiant Disorder, ODD; Conduct Disorder)
  • Attention problems (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD)
  • Academic difficulties (Learning Disorders/Disabilities, ADHD)
  • Social isolation
  • School refusal
  • Anxiety
  • OCD
  • Tourette's Syndrome
  • Autism
  • Eating Disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating)
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Scientifically Supported Treatments for Childhood Disorders:
