Reactive Attachment Disorder is a psychiatric illness that can develop in young children who have problems developing healthy attachments to parents and caregivers. Signs include detached and unresponsive behavior, failure to gain weight, difficulty being soothed or comforted, severe colic, inhibition in social interactions and defiant behavior. With treatment, children with RAD may develop more stable and healthy relationships.
