Section 6 - Psychotropic Medications

Court Review – Summary of Care

For a child receiving psychotropic medication, at every court hearing where medical care is reviewed, the law requires the following to also be included:

  • A description of the psychosocial therapies, behavior strategies, or other non-pharmacological interventions (options that don't involve medicines) that have been offered to the child.
  • The dates, since the previous hearing, of any office visits the child had with the prescribing physician, physician assistant, or advanced practice nurse.
