Childrens Behavioral and Emotional Disorders. During a child's developmental years, they are constantly growing and changing. It is imperative to note that one must keep this in mind when diagnosing and treating emotional and behavioral disorders in children. If a problem, is not temporary or short-lived, then should parents seek out a trained and qualified professional to help their children. Health professionals once thought that brain disorders such as bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, or even depression occurred after childhood but now, it is widely held that these brain disorders can begin in early childhood. According to the National Institute of Mental Health ( N I M H), emotional and behavioral disorders affect 10-15 percent of children globally. One of particular childhood-onset mental disorder that is widely studied, treated, and diagnosed is A D H D, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and the N I M H cites that 3-5 percent of children globally suffer from this disorder. This disorder is one of the most common mental disorders among children, and two to three more boys than girls are affected. Many children are unable to sit still, finish tasks, plan ahead, or even be aware what is going on around them. Some days, children with A D H D seem fine and the next could be a whirlwind of frenzied and disorganized activity. A D H D can continue on into adolescence and even adulthood, however, within the past decade scientists have learned more about it and how to treat it. Children with autism appear to be remote, indifferent, isolated in their own world, and are unable to form emotional connections with other poeple.Quoted From: http://www.kidsmentalhealth.org/childrens-behavioral-and-emotional-disorders/
