Emotional disroders in children
Identifying emotional disorders in children can be tough. If you notice symptoms such as sulking, withdrawal, and wanting to stay alone in your student, then it is time to get him or her professional help.
Identifying students with emotional disabilities is difficult. So, when a child is suspected of having such a problem, then a child psychiatrist must be involved to diagnose it the right way. Emotionally disturbed does not indicate an emotional disability.
Hyperactivity is common. Children with emotional and behavioral disorders are usually impulsive, distracted, and have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Aggression is also common. Aggression can be directed toward objects, other people or oneself. Young children display this behavior by annoying or bullying others.
Learning disabilities is a correlated symptom. A noteworthy percentage of people with emotional disabilities also have learning difficulties.
Emotional may be internalized as eating disorders. Young teenagers, especially girls, may suppress their angsts by starving (anorexia) or making themselves throw up (bulimia). Eating disorders can also arise when somebody is extremely anxious about body image.
Kids can have depression. It is tough to recognize depression in children. Kids usually don’t have the analytical ability, past experience, or vocabulary to describe how they are feeling. Therefore, kids’ outbursts due to depression can be labeled as tantrums by adults.
