Abstract

This chapter highlights case studies involving psychotropic medication treatment approaches to improve school functioning. Within each case study, readers will receive an overview of the reason for referral, the results of the psychiatric consultation, the rationale for psychopharmacological treatment, an overview of a classroom-based medication evaluation plan, and a sense of the cost/benefit analysis to guide future treatment decisions. Case studies (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Depression, Social Anxiety Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Psychosis) related to each of the mental health conditions reviewed in this book are presented. The purpose of each case study is to provide readers with a sense of how to measure the impact of psychotropic medication on a child’s current behavioral functioning within the school and home settings.
