Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood, Revised (DC:0-3R)
"This little volume is a useful tool for every practicing mental health clinician who works with the early years of life. It provides the only existing criteria for psychological evaluation of the very young." -Contemporary Psychology
Published in 1994, ZERO TO THREE’s Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC:0-3) was the first developmentally based system for diagnosing mental health and developmental disorders in infants and toddlers. Its diagnostic categories reflected the consensus of a multidisciplinary group of experts in early childhood development and mental health.
The revised DC:0-3 draws on empirical research and clinical practice that have occurred worldwide since 1994. DC:0-3R is designed to help mental health and other professionals
DC:0-3R enhances your ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat mental health problems in the earliest years by identifying and describing disorders not addressed in other classification systems and by pointing the way to effective intervention approaches.
Mental health clinicians, counselors, physicians, nurses, early interventionists, early childhood educators, and researchers will find DC:0-3R to be an indispensable guide to evaluation and treatment planning with infants, toddlers, and their families in a wide range of settings.
