First published in 1986. The primary purpose of this book is to provide information about the use of medication for several childhood disorders that require long-term treatment. It is the author’s expectation that this information will allow caregivers to make better decisions about the use of medication. This title also examines the importance of evaluating various aspects when medicating a child, including their characteristics, their family situation, and school setting.
