Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) can rob children and young adults of the joy of learning, fun and friendships at school. School personnel are in a unique position to intervene and help children and parents fight this heartbreaking condition. Effective treatment is available and relief is achievable. This web site is designed to provide valuable knowledge about OCD for all school personnel, including regular, bilingual, special educators, school psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, administrators, and paraprofessionals.
School personnel represent a critical link in identifying, assessing, and providing interventions for children and adolescents with OCD. Indeed, for young people with OCD who are experiencing distress in the school setting, the treatment process is incomplete unless and until school-related issues are addressed. Therefore, it is imperative that school personnel become knowledgeable about OCD and learn how to help these students function successfully in educational environments.” Gail B. Adams, Ed.D.,
