    Is there anyone out there that has dealt with a child with ODD?

    Yes, pretty much all of us do/have.

    What kinds of things are you seeing?

    He fits it to a "T". A little man in a childs body. Listens to no rules or adults and goes by his own. Discipline is terrible to do.

    ODD, however, rarely stands by itself. Most of our kids display ODD behaviors, but there is almost always something else attached that is causing the child to act ODD.
    Has he ever had a neuropsychologist evaluation? Are there psychiatric issues on either side of the family tree? Did he have learning or speech or motor delays? Can he socialize well with his peers? Does he act nice then not nice in a split second's time?
