Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders can be debilitating to children and adolescents. Childhood onset of OCD occurs in about 1–3% of all children. When childhood OCD symptoms are particularly sudden and/or suddenly more severe, clinicians should investigate if it is precipitated by infectious or immune problems. The most common comorbid diagnoses are anxiety disorders, followed by oppositional defiant disorder. The Child Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (CY-BOCS) is the gold standard clinician-completed assessment. Intervention can be titrated using a multitiered system of supports framework. Collaborating with teachers, parents, and community providers is essential for these students. A case study is provided to illustrate chapter recommendations.
