1.Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) is a childhood behavioural problem and can becharacterised as a 'repetitive and persistent pattern of opposition, defiant, disobedient anddisrupted behaviours towards all authority figures. A child or young person will show signs ofODD during primary school but they can also be found in children as young as three years ofage. A child with ODD can become easily angered or irritated, have frequent tantrums andargue constantly with adults and their parents. It’s important to start early intervention astrying to assist an adult with ODD can be extremely difficult. A child with ODD can beimpacted by their learning development by being uncooperative and combative theirbehaviour affects their ability to learn and get along with classmates and teachers. This canlead to poor school achievement, cause antisocial life skills and poor impulse control.2.Children with ODD need room to reset, somewhere they can be comfortable like a quiet areaprovided with a comfortable seat, a timer, stuffed toys, simple activities- drawing or squeezycomforters. This is then a spot for the child to take a break and hit the reset button, this thenalso helps the rest of the class and teacher as they are able to reset the classroom while thestudent with ODD calms and resets their mood. Some educators think that supportingchildren with additional needs is the same as good practice with any child. While the basicprinciples apply to all children, at times educators may need to focus on putting a priority onincluding experiences that Specialists have identified to limit the triggers of the child withODD.
