y understanding is that  ODD diagnosed in young children and conduct in older children.

 

Truancy is any intentional unauthorized or illegal absence from compulsory education.

can young children be more truant then

It's not about the necessity of all truants to have a diagnosis of ODD or CD, but more so on the association with a specific condition. 

I have read somewhere that it is most associated with conduct disorder. I cant remember where, but it could have been the best of five mcq's book.

 

I would go with that...

also is this a past question?

the word trauncy should give a clue to CD, ODD less likely to be truant
