Question Description
I’m working on a psychology question and need support to help me understand better.

For this week, read Chapter 13, Abnormal Behavior in Childhood and Adolescence and answer the following questions

1. Summarize some of the challenges in determining if a particular behavior in childhood and adolescence is “normal” behavior or “abnormal” behavior. Briefly describe risk factors for mental health problems in children and adolescents. (300 words.)

2. Choose ONE of the following disorders discussed in your textbook: Autism Spectrum Disorder or Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. For the disorder you have chosen, summarize the diagnostic criteria for that disorder. Then, create an example (NOT ONE FROM YOUR TEXT) of a young person exhibiting symptoms that would lead to that diagnosis and show how the observed behaviors are indicative of the symptoms of the disorder. Then, briefly describe treatments for that disorder. (350 words.)
