It can help to start a notebook to keep track of what you notice and how your child is changing from month to month.
Include your notes, pictures, doctor's visits, etc.
Why should I take notes?
- Helps you to articulate what you notice
- Lets you compare their progress with typical Milestones
- Can help you explain your child's challenges to doctors or teachers
- Keeps track of appointments and meetings
If this is the start of a journey with many doctor visits and tests...it will help to have a record of what happened at each visit.
Next, we'll help you get familiar with some terms you'll hear a lot: developmental delay and milestones. Then we'll talk about asking your child's doctor to check out your concerns.
