This paper describes Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC: 0-3) a descriptive classification system designed to address the need for descriptions of mental health difficulties in the first 4 years of life. DC: 0-3 was implemented in a Psychiatric Program for Infants and Toddlers (Nic Waals Institute) in Norway. DC: 0-3 was used in parallel with earlier established clinical routines and ICD 10 classification. A group of 138 children was classified according to DC: 0-3, Axes I and II. 59% of the children were classified with a Primary Diagnosis according to Axis I, and 48 % with a Relationship Classification according to Axis II. The clinicians found DC: 0-3 criteria to be more clinically relevant for this age group than the ICD 10, and they appreciated the use of Axis II to describe the relationship.
