DC: 0-3R Diagnostic Guidelines - Axis V: Emotional and Social Functioning
This rating system assists clinicians in evaluating the emotional and social functioning of infants and toddlers. This tool was adapted from ZERO TO THREE's DC: 0-3R.
Chris Wright and Cherise Northcutt, in consultation with ZERO TO THREE’s DC:0-3R Training Task Force, developed these Decision Guidelines for Axes I, II, and V of DC:0-3R. Clinicians may find them helpful when using DC:0-3R to diagnose the mental health and developmental disorders of very young children. They are posted here with the permission of Drs. Wright and Northcutt.
