Symptoms of ODD

Some of the more noticeable symptoms of ODD may include:

Frequent temper tantrums

Often questioning rules
Active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests and rules
Deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people
Blaming others for his or her mistakes or misbehavior

The disturbance in behavior must be causing significant problems in school, in relationships with family and friends and at home.
