Official DC:0-5 Overview Training

Offered by ZERO TO THREE-endorsed trainers at the Center for Child & Family Health

The Overview Training provides a foundation for understanding this diagnostic system for professionals who work with infants and young children.

ZERO TO THREE’s Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC:0-5) is the only developmentally sensitive classification system for diagnosing mental health and developmental disorders in infants and young children.

This training will provide participants with an overview of the background, approach, and content areas of DC:0-5™.  It is particularly helpful for allied professionals in understanding the importance of developmentally appropriate diagnostic practices. Participants will consider how this knowledge informs their roles in working with infants, young children, and their families.


Who  This training is for multi-disciplinary professionals involved in infant and early childhood services who want to better understand the DC:05™ classification system. The Overview Training does not prepare licensed professionals to use the tool for diagnosis.
