Understanding Oppositional Defiant Disorder

As you will learn from this video, oppositional defiant disorder—or ODD—is a pattern of behaviors related to defying authority figures and lashing out toward others. It is important to seek medical intervention to identify the roots of these behaviors and offer more positive coping mechanisms. Since it is a behavioral disorder, it can often be corrected with Applied Behavioral Analysis in a professional treatment setting.

If your child is developing these types of behavioral patterns, the professionals at STAR of CA can help. We provide family-oriented therapy and mental health services geared toward behavioral disorders such as ODD and ASD.
