The number of children who present with non-spectrum emotional, behavioral, and psychiatric disturbances (oppositional defiant disorder, mood disorder, etc) has been steadily increasing in recent years. Many of these children attend district schools as well as receive services through private providers. Due to high incidence of communication issues associated with these conditions, speech language pathologists are frequently among the professionals who assess them.
