It can be hard to know if a child is going through normal development or showing signs of something more serious. The following questions and topics will be addressed:

  • Common signs of irritability
  • How parents can help a child with severe irritability
  • What treatment options exist, such as cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Ongoing irritability research conducted at NIMH
