Smiley74 Posted December 7, 2022 Share Posted December 7, 2022 When talking about ADHD medications what are the pro/con of medicating the day of the test versus not? Not medicating-Will make a "controllable" diagnosis show up and since school districts now have to address the diagnosis even if mitigating measures are in place that diminishes the effect of the disability, it can be addressed as there may be days when medication is forgotten, etc. 42 U.S.C. § 12102(4)(E)(i). Medicating-The effects of a primary known disability that medication mitigates could bring an unknown secondary disability to the forefront that has been masked Is there a firm rule on when to medicate and when not to? Does it matter only on IQ testing? Academic testing? What about auditory screens? There is one research study I found that says Ritalin, for example, had a significant effect on the Auditory Continuous Performance Test (ACPT), but should parents medicate kids when going in for a central auditory screen? Audiologist said either was fine, but is it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
