Address the following:
- Identify a disorder that is usually diagnosed first in childhood/adolescence, and provide a thorough explanation of the characteristics of the disorder.
- Research the disorder using your textbook, Web resources, and other professional literature to explain (in detail) complexities in identifying the disorder.
- You will need to write a realistic case (you should create the details) to use as an example in explaining all aspects of the disorder.
