Early Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) is one of the most prevalent and impairing behavior problems affecting young children. The condition is characterized by a persistent pattern of disobedient, noncompliant, hostile, and defiant child behaviors. Parents of children suffering with ODD can struggle on a daily basis with tantrums, meltdowns, and general unpredictability. Affected parents can often feel frustrated, helpless, ineffective, and even embarrassed as they struggle to manage their child’s difficult behavior. Accordingly, early intervention for ODD is critical.
