While fears about separation are normal in young children, Separation Anxiety Disorder is diagnosed when a child seems excessively anxious about separation from home or loved ones.  Features include unrealistic worry about harm to self or significant others during periods of separation, reluctance to sleep alone or be alone, physical complaints and signs of distress in anticipation of separation.

School refusal behavior is another common feature of Separation Anxiety Disorder.
