What obsessive-compulsive disorder in kids looks like in school
from The Washington Post
People with obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD, suffer from unwanted and intrusive thoughts that they can't seem to get out of their heads, called obsessions, which often compel them to perform ritualistic behaviors and routines, or compulsions, over and over to try to ease their anxiety. Children and teens may not realize they have it — and parents and educators often misunderstand or misdiagnose the condition.
