  • Recommend one FDA-approved drug, one off-label drug, and one nonpharmacological intervention for treating your assigned disorder in children and adolescents.
  • Explain the risk assessment you would use to inform your treatment decision making. What are the risks and benefits of the FDA-approved medicine? What are the risks and benefits of the off-label drug?

If not, explain what information you would need to take into consideration. (TIP: Research online IF there is any “clinical practice guidelines” for management of your assigned disorder. Hence your response should be either YES or NO WITH further explanation as required on this question)
