Since May is Children's Mental Health Month, a children's counselor spoke to us about the warning signs your child may have a mental disability.

She focused specifically on very young children, mostly pre-schoolers.

Here are some warning signs you can look out for:

- They sound and act excessively angry.

- They are sleep disturbances.

- At times they cannot be calmed down/inconsolable/wound up or tuned up.

- They are unable to engage or spend time focusing on play/bizarre types of play.

- Sometimes language and motor skill delays are the result of excess stress.
