Medical advocacy, to me, means ensuring the child’s medical and health needs are taken care of. Much like i did as i was raising my kids – if they had a chronic condition, making sure all appointments were followed up on, symptoms were under control, etc. Making sure they had all of their wellness visits and immunizations, etc. For the court report I would speak to the pediatrician, the caregivers at the time (resource parents) and the biological parents to see if there is any history i was not seeing in the medial records.
