The Damage Done Obsessive thinking intensifies and prolongs distressing emotions. For example, worry reinforces anxious feelings – you literally scare yourself – which, in turn, only leads to more worry. The process can extend into anxious periods lasting hours, days or weeks, at times “spiraling” into panic attacks and emotional “spikes” of anger, guilt and shame. Obsessive thinking limits effective problem solving, and promotes procrastination, avoidance and withdrawal, only resulting in further problems. Obsessive thinking plays a prominent role mood disorders, including dysthymia, major depression, bipolar disorder, and is the defining symptom of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, and many other psychological conditions.

Maybe you are thinking about Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets when I mention OCD (locking and re-locking his door, washing his hands with scalding water and a new bar of soap each time, not stepping on lines in the sidewalk, bringing his own silverware to a restaurant, etc.). Well, that is what it can look like, but many children with autism exhibit obsessive and compulsive behaviors which may or may not fit into the categories of cleaning or germ phobias. Many children diagnosed with autism have other behaviors which seem to be obsessive (in the sense that they are hyper-focused on preferred topics or items) or compulsive (the need to have things look a certain way, the need to have things happen a certain way, etc.). However, that does not mean they need an OCD diagnosis; it is sometimes just the best way to describe the behaviors they are engaging in. Getting an OCD diagnosis can be complicated and should only be given by someone with experience with children with autism and OCD.

Many children with autism have ritualized behaviors and interests
These behaviors are often just accepted as part of life; however, there are occasions when the behaviors pose a problem. This most often occurs when it interferes with a child being able to leave their home, go into public, or participate in typical school activities. The problem typically arises when a ritual or compulsive behavior is interrupted or prevented or when the child is not allowed to engage in discussing/searching the internet for their preferred topics/interests because someone does not want to talk about what they want to talk about, their access to the computer is restricted, or they are redirected to a different task. At these times, it is not uncommon to see the emergence of problem behaviors such as tantrumming, aggression, disruptive behaviors, etc. Most often your child is exhibiting these behaviors to try and regain control, reduce anxiety associated with not being able to engage in their obsessions and rituals, or in an attempt to have others allow them to have their way (for example, they may have learned that engaging in problem behaviors typically results in you letting them have their way so they will try to see if that works).
