Can young children accurately be diagnosed?

Well, yes, I actually do think that you can and should diagnosed young children if they require it - diagnosis oftentimes means that young children get the help that they need.

However, John Grohol brings up a good point - oftentimes medical professionals see a psychiatric diagnosis as a reason and excuse to prescribe medication. That is a practice that would require a great deal more of research before it becomes common.
