Oppositional Defiant Disorder Resource Center

It's not unusual for children, especially those in their "terrible twos" and early teens, to defy authority every now and then. When this behavior lasts longer than six months and is excessive compared to what is usual for the child's age, it may mean that the child has a type of behavior disorder called oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). The Oppositional Defiant Disorder Resource Center from the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry contains specific family-friendly information on ODD. Sections include: About, Glossary of Symptoms, Frequently Asked Questions, Treatment Resources, Facts for Families Sheets by Diagnosis, Video Clips, Clinical Resources, Recommended Books, How to Get Help, Links to Support Groups, and Helpful APPS.
