DC: 0-3R Diagnostic Guidelines - Axis V: Emotional and Social Functioning

Download Files Feb 10, 2010

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.
