OPPOSITIONAL DEFIANT DISORDER
oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) applies to an unhelpfully large number of problems that are, from a therapist's perspective, best viewed as separate, distinct issues.
This website is dedicated to helping parents and teachers with one subset of oppositional defiant disorder - behaviors that do not respond to normal parenting and classroom management techniques.
