Children struggling with mental health and learning disorders are at risk for poor outcomes in school and in life. Childhood differs from adulthood in that children experience many physical, mental, and emotional changes as they progress through their natural growth and development while learning how to cope with, adapt, and relate to others and the world around them. Some disorders such as anxiety disorders, eating disorders, mood disorders and schizophrenia, can occur in adults as well as children while others only begin in childhood such as Aspergers, Autism, ADHD, and Tourettes. It is not unusual for a child to have more than one disorder.
