How do I know for sure that my teenage daughter has ODD
She will need to be evaluated by a psychiatrist. She must meet certain criteria outlined in the DSM IV.
My 12 year old son was just diagnosed with ODD this week. He was diagnosed after seeing his psychologist for only a month. I was sent home with several assessments to fill out for him answering questions about his behavior and how I felt he would react in different situations. I'm still a little skeptical about the quick diagnosis.
