ODD Definition 

“​Even the best-behaved children can be difficult and challenging at times. But if your child or teen has a frequent and persistent pattern of anger, irritability, arguing, defiance or vindictiveness toward you and other authority figures, he or she may have oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).”


This definition is taken from the mayoclinic website. The wording, much like the majority of resources I have found so far, is parent focused as opposed to educator focused.
