In brief: Yes.

Obviously, a skilled mental health physician needs to make this type of diagnosis -- but that's what we are trained to do.

In brief: Yes

Unfortunately, young children do have such problems, but can be very difficult to diagnose.
Properly this should be done , if necessary by a trained pediatric professional.
