We put together a sheet following Friday’s blog post that parents can download and share with their child’s physician when they would like their child with ADHD to experience the benefits of medication for church activities. The purpose of the sheet is to help parents share their concerns about church activities with the child’s treating physician and provide the physician with the information they’ll need to order the necessary adjustments in the type of medication prescribed and the times when medication should be administered.
Download the form here: Medication Request for Church
Note to church staff and volunteers: Don’t share the existence of this form with parents who have not explicitly disclosed that their child takes prescribed medication for ADHD and expressed interest in using or adjusting medication for church. The use of prescription medication should not be a precondition for a child’s involvement in church activities.
