YOUR RESULT: MEDIUM-HIGH
This score indicates that you have a medium to high score on the Oppositional-Defiant scale.
The inability to regulate anger, or often the feeling of resentment and vindication can be detrimental to social relationships and everyday functioning. It can increase the frequency of argument and contradiction in familial relationship, thus increasing parental stress.
There are interventions to enhance emotional regulation. Speak to one of our psychologists to get your specific recommendation based on your child’s unique profile.
This scale is not a comprehensive diagnostic tool of oppositional behaviours nor is it a substitute for comprehensive assessment of Oppositional-Defiant Disorder (ODD). ODD is a clinical disorder that requires a brain diagnostic investigation among other neuropsychological assessments and often interferes heavily in every day functioning and/or social relationships.
