DC03R Medium Sized Cover

Content on DC: 0-3R is premium content and requires that you log-in or register now.

Once you do, a navigational bar will appear on the right-hand side of your screen that offers access to Zero to Three Journal articles about diagnosing developmental delays and disorders in infants and toddlers. You also gain access to reproducible forms that you can use in your practice.

ZERO TO THREE published DC:0-3 in 1994 to address the need for a systematic, developmentally based approach to the classification of mental health and developmental disorders in the first four years of life. It was the first-ever attempt by a group of experienced clinicians to formulate a useful scheme that would complement, but not replace, existing medical and developmental frameworks.

In the 10 years since its publication, DC:0-3 has become increasingly valued as a complement to The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-III-R) and the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (ICD 9). DC:0-3 has been published in 8 additional languages, increasing its accessibility to clinicians around the world.
