Many youth today are using medications to assist in their ability to function more successfully in the home, school and community. While medications can be a positive support for learning and participating in school activities, side effects can occur that range from mild discomfort to very serious. It is important for educators to understand the intended positive outcomes of medication use, as well as the unintended side effects that can occur. Dr. Sara Dugan offers insights into frequently prescribed medications and what teachers should be aware of as they teach and support students using these medications.
