    I thought I read a while back that there is a form/format that you fill all your info into so you don't have to keep repeating it as you go to doctor appointments. I can't seem to locate it - is the link/form here on the board or is my memory failing me?

    Dara, I think what you're looking for is the Parent Report. Not sure where to find it in the archives, but one of the other members or one of the mods might be able to point you in the right direction.

    Any takers?

    Take a break... We have to do two... One for each difficult child. We've been working on them for over a month. A bit here, a bit there...

    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    Once it is done it is so nice to have.
    Everyone I have ever given it to has been blown away.

    FYI: I have one that has "more" personal info, like stuff about me and husband etc. This is one that I would give to psychiatrist's or the people who really need to know this stuff.

    I have another on file with the "cleaned" up version of just K or N info that is purely for places or people like School or someone like an Occupational Therapist (OT) or like her Horse Therapy etc.

    Some people just don't need to know that I have Mental Illness or my family is full of Psycho-Paths! LOL

    I sat each evening for about 2 weeks and just jotted down notes on a note pad, with my Journals, calenders and files lying all around me.

    Well worth it. Now with her 29 page Nuero-psychiatric report I mainly use that, but it is nice to have both.
