Non-pharmacological Interventions

Psychosocial therapies, behavior strategies, and other non-pharmacological (non-medication) interventions are to be considered by the medical consenter before or along with psychotropic medications.

  • Non-pharmacological interventions are specific methods a caregiver can use to help a child manage behavior.
  • This may include therapy and specific behavior modification strategies.
  • Each child is different, so the strategies should be specific to the child’s needs and discussed with the child’s therapist or medical provider.
