Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Typically a child psychiatrist will be able to diagnose the child from their behaviors, conversations and report of others. However, in this age it may nearly be impossible. Some Laboratory tests include electroencephalogram and brain imaging scans to look for characteristic sings of schizophrenia. Additionally, chromosomal microarray can be used to see which conditions are affecting the child.
