Response #1: Group 7- Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)
Interesting post on assignment about the parental guide for ODD. According to research, when children act out persistently it causes serious problems at home, in school, or with peers, they may be diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD). ODD usually starts before 8 years of age, but no later than by about 12 years of age. Children with ODD are more likely to act oppositional or defiant around people they know well, such as family members, a regular care provider, or a teacher. Children with ODD show these behaviors more often than other children their age (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2020)
Signs and symptoms of Oppositional Defiant Disorder include the followings:
