Jeanne Ettelson, president of Beyond OCD, announced that Dr. Gail B. Adams, educational psychologist and a member of Beyond OCD’s Scientific Advisory Board, will speak about helping students with OCD at a special conference for teachers, special educators, child psychologists and school nurses in Stockholm, Sweden. The conference is being organized by Ananke, the Swedish OCD foundation, in conjunction with The National Support organization for persons with AD/HD, Tourette syndrome and Asperger syndrome.

Dr. Adams’ presentation, titled “What Hindrances Do Children with OCD Experience in School?” will consist of an overview of the most common obsessions and compulsions among children and adolescents with OCD, and how these symptoms affect them in school. She will also be addressing general and specific strategies school personnel can implement to help students with OCD function more effectively in the school setting.
