People get neuropsych testing when they want to know what is causing their difficulty reading, making friends, and paying attention, why they worry, feel sad, hurt others, can’t sit still, or why their kid just seems ‘different.’ Other times people know what is wrong, and just need to know what to do (e.g. ADHD)."

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Chicago or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Chicago, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Chicago.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
