More on ODD

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m doing research into Oppositional Defiance Disorder due to a friend dealing with ODD in her son.

I found a great site full of info about ODD from the Mayo Clinic.

Some of the behavioral earmarks in kids with ODD are defiance, disobediance, hostility toward authority figures, argues with adults, frequent tantrums, deliberately annoys other people, blames others for their mistakes or misbehaviors.

ODD also can often occur along with ADHD, making learning and behavior issues somewhat tricky to deal with.
