Anxiety disorders in children are to be treated early to avoid an adverse effect on performance in academics and their social development. Fear and anxiety are the two main factors which drag children from success.

Short temper, stubborn behaviour in children may be indicators of a depressive illness in them. Children may appear to be sad, with a decline in academic performance, deterioration in self-care and detachment from parents and peers are other indicators.

Autism Spectrum Disorder is a  neuro-developmental disorder which usually presents in early childhood. It is characterised by the presence of poor social reciprocation, delayed speech development and stereotypic movements. If intervened at an earlier age, with a multidisciplinary team comprising of a psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, etc, the results could be very reassuring.

Characterised by the presence of hyperactivity and inattention and impulsive behaviors. Around 70 % of children having ADHD, could also have associated learning problems like dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. If untreated, it could progress to behavioural problems like Oppositional defiance and Conduct problems and a risk for early onset substance abuse.
