DC:0-5™

DC:0–5™ Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood is designed to help professionals in mental health and other/related fields.

In 1994, ZERO TO THREE published its groundbreaking manual, DC:0–3 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. The original version was followed by the revised version, DC:0-3R nearly a decade later. This critically important guide quickly became an indispensable resource for mental health clinicians, counselors, physicians, early interventionists, educators, and researchers, and established ZERO TO THREE as a leading authority in the field of infant mental health.

The DC:0-3R Revision Task Force is updating and revising the DC:0-3R—a 3-year process that began in March 2013. The updated manual, titled DC:0-5™, will be released in December 2016.
