As of 7-28-23 we have added a new module (Module 16) entitled Disorders of Childhood Overview. Please note that this is not an exhaustive discussion, but an overview, only and includes a discussion of clinical presentation, prevalence, comorbidity, and differential diagnosis (when relevant).

In this module, we cover:

  • Disorders of infancy and early childhood to include disinhibited social engagement disorder, reactive attachment disorder, pica, rumination disorder, and avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, enuresis, and encopresis.
  • Developmental and motor-related disorders to include intellectual developmental disorder (intellectual disability), specific learning disorder, autism spectrum disorder, social (pragmatic) communication disorder, stereotypic movement, and tic disorders.
  • Behavior-related disorders to include ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, and intermittent explosive disorder.
  • Anxiety disorders of selective mutism and separation anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive and related disorders of trichotillomania, and excoriation disorder.
