Behavior Disorders

All sorts of behavior disorders hound people around the globe. Children as well as adults are found to be patients of myriad behavior disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and Conduct Disorder (CD). Treatment of these disorders can include medication, education and therapy or a combination of two or all of them.

Some symptoms might be common across all the disorders, so correct diagnosis could be difficult as well as time consuming. It is possible that a child may have multiple disorders at the same time, thereby making things too complex. Some factors that may exacerbate the condition of the patient include substance abuse, family difficulties and emotional problems.

Boys are more prone to such disorders, though the exact reason behind why so happens is unknown. At times, low birth weight, premature birth and difficult pregnancy can be the reason behind such behavior disorders.
