OCD can present significant problems for most students when symptoms interface with the academic demands of organization, homework, studying for tests, or completing projects. This experiential workshop will explain the scientific research showing deficits in organizational skills and planning for OCD sufferers. A description of behaviors resulting from OCD symptoms will be provided. We will demonstrate how OCD students can be taught to compensate for deficits with cognitive retraining in organizational and study strategies.  Attendees will examine student-centered and teacher-centered supports for OCD students. Hands-on tools will be provided for immediate use by elementary through high school students. Parents will be given ideas on instrumentation, accountability, and trouble-shooting. Students will learn how to make school easier, faster, and more fun.
