Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is defined by a person constantly driven by performing an obsessive or impulsive task – even if they get no pleasure of completing the task.
OCD is a mental illness that has a set thought process: obsession leads to anxiety, creating compulsion, which leads to obsessive behaviour for temporary relief. This never-ending cycle of compulsive tendencies can quickly dominate a person’s life.
This is especially difficult for children with the disability, as it can affect their well-being in school, their drive to complete tasks in the classroom, and social relationships.
Effective treatment for OCD disability – keep in mind there’s no outright cure for the condition – is possible with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), along with medication depending on the child. CBT has been proven to be a form of OCD support and treatment, and is known as the most effective solution for OCD. It’s recommended by nationally-recognized medical institutions like the National Institutes of Mental Health, Mayo Clinic, and Harvard Medical School.
Obsessive compulsive disorder disability may be eligible for the Child Disability Tax Credit and the Child Disability Benefit, helping families offset the unavoidable, added costs of OCD treatment and support.
CBT in particular can be costly, considering this form of treatment is on-going, in order to manage the symptoms so the child can live as normal a life as possible. Being aware of the barriers to treatment, and knowing what to do ahead of time, are both critical to the success of your child’s scoliosis treatment.
OCD treatment & support can be managed with the Child Disability Tax Credit and the Child Disability Benefit – The National Benefit Authority can help you apply for the maximum OCD benefits refund.
