Example text

Many children with OCD may be successful academically and with other school activities, but they may have difficulty completing their homework and papers, as they focus on getting things perfect. Many children, feeling embarrassed by their symptoms, successfully hide them from their peers and teachers but cannot hide them at home when they are more tired and less in control of their behaviors.

PANDAS is similar to Sydenham chorea but usually presents in a much shorter time after the infection and has fewer of the movement problems and more of the tics and the psychiatric manifestations, such as obsessions and compulsions identical to those in OCD.
