The first thing I think is, “whoa! There is going to be a lot of information to go through and keep straight!” Once, I have a handle on the needs of the specific child, it will be important to keep a calendar just for that child’s medical appointments (both physical and if necessary mental health appointments) and continue to speak with Division and the primary care physician to keep on top of the child’s medical needs. Depending on the medical issues, I would plan to speak with all medical doctors and therapists that work with the child. I would also speak with teachers and the resource parent to get a sense of on how well the child seems able to cope with school activities and general wellness at home (sleeping, eating, socializing patterns).
