Lucas, Matthew D.; Sturgis, Amanda L.
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p65-68 Fall 2012
The participation of a student with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) in recess can often be both challenging and rewarding for the student and teacher. This paper will address common characteristics of students with OCD and present basic solutions to improve the experience of these students in the recess setting. Initially the definition, symptoms, and prevalence of OCD will be presented. The paper will then address the special education classification of children with OCD, benefits of recess for children with OCD, and recommendations for these children in recess.
