This journal can be used by families where children have additional needs or undiagnosed conditions. At the heart of the journal is a set of charts, linked with the Early Years Foundation Stage, that families use to record what their child is able to do, as time passes and they learn new things.

Families in many different situations may find this material useful. It helps anyone wanting to look in detail at how a young child is changing and learning – whether or not a particular factor or ‘condition’ has been identified that is likely to impact on the rate and pattern of development.

The journal enables joint working, by improving everyone’s understanding of early childhood development and sharing information about how a young child is progressing. Where many different people are in contact with a child, it provide a shared set of documents for reference as a child grows and changes.
