Obsessive Compulsive Disorder<br />Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, OCD, is an anxiety disorder and is characterized by recurrent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive behaviors (compulsions).<br />Signs & Symptoms<br />People with OCD may be weighed down by persistent, unwelcome thoughts or images, or by the urgent need to engage in certain rituals. They may be obsessed with germs or dirt, and wash their hands over and over. They may be filled with doubt and feel the need to check things repeatedly<br />http://www.lynxtracks.ca/images/Young%20man%20looking%20in%20mirror.jpg<br />
  7. 7. Interventions for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder<br />It’s important to document the problems to build a case for helping the student<br />School psychologists, social workers, counselors and other school professionals can be effective allies in assessing a student’s behavior and validating behaviors observed by teachers<br />Communicate with the students families ideas you have to help<br />Help students become educated with their disorder<br />Help students practice refraining from their obsessions and compulsions<br />Give parents and students information on OCD support groups<br />Help student practice relaxation techniques<br />
  8. 8. Bipolar Disorder<br />Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings from overly high and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes in mood. The periods of highs and lows are called episodes of mania and depression.<br />http://uncommonpics.com/pic-5078-Happy-sad-knee<br />
  9. 9. Interventions for Bipolar Disorder<br />Keep in constant contact with the students parents so they can let you know when their child is starting a new cycle<br />Keep a positive attitude towards the student<br />Families of the student may or may not want in-school counseling to work on self-management of the disorder<br />Some students may need to sit closer to the teacher to enhance their ability to focus and to enable the teacher to discreetly assist them in refocusing or initiating tasks. Other students may wish to sit nearer to the door so that they can leave without calling attention to themselves.<br />At times, the student may feel that he/she can&apos;t cope and needs to get out of the room. Preplanning should involve the student identifying a safe place to go to if they just need to “chill”.<br />Provide the student with discreet assistance focusing or remaining on-task<br />A Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) might be helpful for some students with Bipolar Disorder<br />
