Most Preschoolers With Mood, Behavior, And Social Disorders Would Benefit From Non-Medication Therapies, Experts Say

HealthDay (11/21, Pallarito) reports, “Most preschoolers with mood, behavior and social disorders would benefit from non-drug therapies, but few receive this type of help,” experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics found in a new report. Because “parents, policymakers and” other caregivers “fail to recognize that young children are affected by the things that happen around them,” the AAP has proposed suggestions “for closing the treatment gap…in a policy statement published online Nov. 21 in the journal Pediatrics.”
