Childhood Psychiatry

Mental disorders diagnosed in children are mainly divided into two categories: childhood disorders and learning disorders. They are diagnosed when the child is of school-age, some adults may also relate to some of the symptoms of these disorders. The most common developmental disorder is mental retardation. As per the CDC report, more than one out of every 100 school children in the United States has some form of mental retardation. The second most common developmental disorder is cerebral palsy, followed by autism spectrum disorders. Our conference will address all areas pertinent to various childhood disorders including Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Attachment Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder and Mood Dysregulation Disorder. According to a recent study about 7 percent of kids worldwide have ADHD. As per the U.S. Surgeon General, about 20% of American children suffer from a diagnosable mental illness during a given year. Further, nearly 5 million American children and adolescents suffer from a serious mental illness.

The child and adolescent psychiatrist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and the treatment of disorders of thinking, feeling and/or behavior affecting children, adolescents, and their families. A child psychiatrist offers families the advantages of a medical education, the medical traditions of professional ethics, and medical responsibility for providing comprehensive care.
