Child / Adolescent OCD Test

OCD Center Los Angeles

Children and adolescents with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) experience obsessions (repetitive, unwanted thoughts, ideas, or images), and/or perform compulsions (repetitive behaviors) in an effort to avoid or decrease the anxiety created by these obsessions. The OCD Center of Los Angeles offers the following brief questionnaire in an effort to help you get a better idea of whether or not your child is exhibiting signs of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Simply check those items that apply to you, and email it to us using the simple form below. While this questionnaire is not meant to replace a thorough evaluation, it may help in identifying traits of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).



My child worries excessively about dirt and/or germs and/or bodily fluids (blood, spit, sweat, urine, etc).


My child washes and/or showers excessively or in a very specific way.


My child avoids touching other people or being touched by others.


My child excessively cleans his/her room or toys or books or other objects that don't really need cleaning.


My child takes extra care that his/her things (i.e., clothes, bedroom, toys, school books) are always neat and clean and orderly, and gets upset if others mess things up.


If my child does things on one side of his/her body, he/she often needs to do a similar action on the other side in order to make things "equal", or "even", or symmetrical.

My child often needs to do basic behaviors (i.e., homework, getting dressed, putting away toys, eating) in a very specific order.


My child often checks his/her homework or household chores repeatedly to make sure that things are correct and perfect, and sometimes needs to redo his/her homework or household chores to make things are 100% perfect.

This questionnaire was developed partly on the basis of clinical experience of staff therapists at the OCD Center of Los Angeles, and partly as an adaptation of various pre-existing psychometric measures, including the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (YBOCS), and the Leyton Inventory. Please note that the above test is not meant to replace a complete and thorough evaluation by a licensed Cognitive-Behavioral therapist or other qualified mental health professional. While many parents prefer that their children not take psychiatric medications, some children may benefit from medication, and may therefore benefit from a psychiatric evaluation. Likewise, a psychiatric assessment may be necessary to differentiate between OCD and other psychological conditions. If an evaluation is indicated, the OCD Center of Los Angeles can refer you to a qualified psychiatrist in our area. Furthermore, it is imperative to make the distinction between OCD and other medical conditions. For this reason, in some cases, a medical examination may be necessary.
