This article suggests specific ways in which the parents of a child requiring treatment with stimulant drugs can most effectively administer the prescribed medications - ways in which they can bridge what is often a communication gap between their child's doctor and teacher. A parent's insights, gained from first-hand experience, attempt to support and reassure other parents involved with such a treatment program.
