What is ODD?

ODD or Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a condition that is manifested by a child consistently refusing (ie being oppositional and defiant) to follow their parents' requests. These children often have chronic anger, are easily annoyed, blame others for their mistakes, and can be vindictive. This condition shares qualities with other psychological disorders, so a referral to a mental health clinician can be helpful.

What is a Concussion?

A concussion occurs when an individual's head is struck by a force so that the brain slides around in the skull. When this happens minimal damage can be caused resulting in the symptoms of a concussion (concentration /memory problems, headaches, nauseau, etc.). This damage is caused either by mild shearing or tearing of brain tissue or when the brain hits up against the skull. This type of damage will usually not show up on brain scans so a diagnosis is made by the type of difficulties the individual exhibits. Usually concussions are short lived, but they can be serious if symptoms don't clear up after a few days or when a series of concussions occur and the brain does not have enough time to recover between each one.
