Psychology Information Online: Childhood Disorders


Psychology Information Online: Childhood Disorders

Logo for Psychology Information Online: Childhood Disorders
Many psychological disorders first diagnosed in children involve physiological and/or genetic components. However, there are many other psychological disorders found in children without any physical causes. Disorders caused by physiological or biological problems are more likely to be identified early in life, but some of these problems are not identified until adulthood. This site provides information on some of the most common psychological disorders of childhood.

The content is fine but the material is listed as a simulation. I either missed a link or it should be listed differently.

I spent about fifteen minutes reading the different disorders listed. The
quality of the content was staight to the facts with no details. I think if
needing to learn or teach the basic facts about these disorders it would be
beneficial, but if there are any questions regarding speicifics of medications,
treatment, tips on how to handle behaviors for these disorders, the information
is not there. This is a very brief, straight to the point resource.

Technical Remarks:

I think it would be very easy for first time users to explore.

I spent about 30 minutes navigating this site. The information on various
childhood disorders, such as ADHD and separation anxiety,was very informative.
The infornation is easy to understand and straight- forward.

Technical Remarks:

The site is easy to navigate. There is nothing to download or any other
material needed to benefit from this site.

I spent approximately 30 minutes reading about the four major childhood
disorders--ADHD, conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and separation
anxiety--then, from the home page, I took a tour through several other links,
including continuing education in the field of psychology, careers available in
the same, as well as additional links to many interesting articles and

This is an excellent source for parents searching for explanations regarding
their child's abnormal behavior. Also for students researching childhood
behavioral disorders.

Technical Remarks:

No difficulties navigating through the provided links.
