Studies indicated that PTSD children under the age of 7 didn't attain the DSM -IV threshold of criterion C. Older children meet criteria B by 72.9%. When reports are given by parents and children criterias B,C, and D are increased by 37.5%. These discoveries show added support for lowering the stipulation of three criterion C. (J.L)
