Dr. Alain Katic of Houston Clinical Trials joins us to answer parents' and professionals' questions about mental health and medication. He discusses how to tell if a medication is working, how long it takes to see changes, and provides information on side effects parents may see with certain medications. Many questions asked are related specifically to children who have speech, language and sensory processing difficulties. In addition, Dr. Katic provides background information on many common medications, including those used to treat ADHD, and gives a variety of parent resources for those seeking more information. This episode is recorded from a live virtual adult education session hosted by The Parish School in Houston, TX.
