Possibly: It depends on what you mean by "alot, " but here are a few thoughts. Children diagnosed with odd are often elementary-school aged children, and young enough to respond well to clinical intervention. If left untreated however, the symptoms might intensify and lead to conduct disorder, which can then lead to later development of anti social personality disorder.

About 1 in 16: 25% of children who have oppositional defiant disorder develop conduct disorder, and 25 to 40% of those children go on to develop antisocial personality disorder. According to loeber, r, et al (1985) journal of abnormal child psychology, 21, 377-410 and zocccolillo, m., et al (1992) psychological medicine, 22, 971-986.
