Question

Just wondering if you know of/could recommend a good child behavioral psychologist. We think our daughter has ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) and really need professional help.

Responses

  • try contacting the Child Behaviour and Development Service. Depending on her age you may need a referral (which may also help speed up the appointment) but they have a very good range of specialists and can do a multidisciplinary assessment of your daughter and it is all covered under Medicare as far as I know.
    It saves a lot of time with assessment and diagnosis as they all work together and collaborate.

  • CDABS. But unless you have someone advocate, expect to wait a while for an appointment. Alternatively, change your kids diet! Cutting out gluten, dairy and soy and eliminated mould from our house has been the difference between a diagnosis and no diagnosis! Amazing how fast their little bodies heal and their behaviour improves once you get rid of nasty toxins
