Use a recording schedule that works for you:
- Record right after each ADL.
- Record after getting your child up (and out).
- Record in the evening about getting your child to bed and about health and activities that day.
- Review the events of the week – the skills achieved, step-by-step.
- See what sensory issues, home conditions, or frustrations
may have disrupted the ADL.
- Learn what led to negative behaviors and what happened after.
- Look for patterns.
- Check the Strategize section to find a training aid or plan to help your child.
- Use the strategy or aid for a week.
- Rerun the reports and contrast the events of the two weeks.
- If there has been a positive change, continue and check again a week later.
- If there's been no change, look at the report to see if other
issues are more apparent now.
- Enter medications, supplements, and treatment programs your child currently receives.
- When you start using a new strategy, diet, or piece of adaptive equipment, enter it into a new record.
- Use the strategy for a week or more, unless it causes significant problems.
- Include the treatment changes in your graphs to monitor their impact.
