Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a behavioural disorder that results in negative and hostile behaviour from a child.
This article explains:
- The signs or what to look for when identifying Oppositional Defiant Disorder
- Ways to help a child with the disorder
The disorder is becoming more common and boys are thought to be more likely to be affected than girls. The disorder can be diagnosed in a child as young as three years old but is more likely to be recognised in school-aged children.
Some of the signs of Oppositional Defiant Disorder can be similar to normal emotional stages in a child’s development; however, children with the disorder will display symptoms that are more prominent for an extended period of time.
