STAMP (Supporting Treatment and Appropriate Medication in Paediatrics)

STAMP aims to support children and young people with Autism, a Learning Disability, or both, who are prescribed psychotropic medicines (psychotropic describes any drug that affects behaviour, mood, thoughts, or perception). It helps ensure they have these medicines for the right reasons in the shortest amount of time possible. 

STAMP also empowers children and young people along with parents and carers to be involved in the decision making when starting, reducing or stopping the medication.  Alternative non-medication treatments are considered and the support available to the children and young people.
