Did you know that developmental and mental health diagnoses generally fall into at least 1 of 3 categories: 1) Medical/Biological, 2) Substance-Induced, and 3) Psychological? Common diagnoses in children and adolescents requiring treatment include Autism, Prader Willi Syndrome, Speech/Communication Delays, Intellectual Developmental Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Global Developmental Delay, Down’s Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Disorder. Prevalence rates, comorbidities, age ranges, treatment, parent counseling, and medication is discussed. A brief description of several diagnoses is included (e.g., Autism, Intermittent Explosive Outburst, Oppositional Defiant and Conduct Disorders, ADHD, and Intellectual Disability).
