Eating disorders among school-age children have become an increasingly serious mental health concern over the past decade. Children and adolescents from 5 to 18 years old are being diagnosed with eating disorders, and the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) has expanded the eating disorders section to allow for more precise diagnoses of these disorders. Children and adolescents with eating disorders can suffer from anxiety, depression, and other mental disorders underlying the eating disorder. Youth often hide their eating disorder from adults, making it difficult for school professionals to assist them. This chapter includes evidence-based information on the assessment and diagnosis of and interventions for school-age children with eating disorders.

Keywords:   anorexia, anxiety, assessment, binge eating disorder, bulimia, depression, DSM-5, compulsive behaviors, eating disorders, intervention
