When caring for a child or adolescent with a disability, every parent and caregiver’s first priority immediately becomes doing everything they can to assure the child gets the best possible care. Unfortunately, specialized care doesn’t come cheap and many families quickly find themselves in financial trouble soon after encountering such a situation. The Canadian Disability Tax Credit was designed to help you bridge that gap regardless of your income level and Canadian Disability Benefits can help make sure you receive the maximum benefits available.
What is a Conduct Disorder?
Conduct disorder is a psychological disorder which first presents and is diagnosed during childhood or early adolescence. The conduct referred to in the name can be any repeated actions which break the law or violate socially accepted standards of age appropriate conduct. While this may initially seem to include every teenager who ever experienced a rebellious phase, the pattern of behavior exhibited by those suffering from conduct disorder goes far beyond. While no scientific link has been made, conduct disorder is frequently seen as a precursor to an adult diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder as they share the same spirit of apathy and callousness toward others.
Symptoms of a Conduct Disorder
One of the major symptoms of conduct disorder and probably the most significant in terms of understand why Canadian Disability Benefits and proper treatment are so vital is the lack of empathy shown by those who have been diagnosed with conduct disorder. As empathy is the normal human ability to understand and accommodate another person’s feelings, a lack of this ability is understandably concerning as it makes one not care about how their actions affect anyone but themselves.
Conduct disorder has also been found to commonly occur along with other mental disorders at a higher rate which can further complicate not only the initial diagnosis but also the treatment of each independent condition. The most common comorbid conditions which accompany conduct disorder are ADHD, substance use disorders and learning disabilities. As one can clearly see, all of these disorders will mutually feed off one another when comorbid with conduct disorder and can eventually grow to a powerful force of antisocial behavior and self-destruction which may become irreversible.
