The Short OCD Screener (SOCS)



Up to 3% of children and adolescents are estimated to have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Youth at risk of OCD can be screened in a variety of settings–including general practice and community clinics–using the SOCS. This 7-item self-report tool. The first 5 items assess symptoms such as checking, washing, and exactness, while the other 2 items pertain to impairment and resistance associate with symptoms. The total score for all items represents the SOCS score.
