Learning your child has OCD can be a relief, but also overwhelming. Your child's symptoms finally have a name, but what does it mean and what are the next steps? Being a parent of a child with OCD involves ensuring your child receives the best treatment, doesn't fall behind in school, and experiences minimal impact socially. This can be daunting, especially when struggling to navigate the health care systems and educational institutions. Presenters will discuss how to find OCD experts for treatment; advocating for your child with teachers and school counselors; and becoming an OCD advocate.
