The following example worksheets provide some simple ideas about how to structure work with families and record your discussions and progress. You can make worksheets to suit the individual needs of the child and his or her family and deal with pertinent issues for them. This can be a useful way to review work with families and present evidence of strengths and difficulties to other professionals.

This means that they can refer to the work when at home and add to it when they are able.
