This paper discusses the impact of obsessive-oompulsive disorder on the family, social, and academic functioning. It also addresses what OCD really is, the possible causes, what the treatments are, manifestations of the symptoms, and its prevalence within our society. In addition, it discusses an interview done with the family of a child who has OCD. OCD is not a well-known disability, and this paper helps the reader to better identify OCD and its symptoms along with the numerous effects it has in many different areas.
