Communication Log

Families with  children or youth with special health needs or disabilities interact with multiple systems and providers.  The Communication Log is a convenient and portable resource to help families capture important information, prepare for meetings, or support family-school communication.  Suggested uses include, but are not limited to:

Parent Record Keeping

  • Record contacts with medical or service providers, program staff, schools, insurance, etc. Include date, name of person you spoke with, contact information, and a brief summary of the conversation.
  • Write down questions or comments in advance of meetings, to help you stay focused on what you want to accomplish.

Parent - School Communication

  • Determine what information should be shared between home and school to support the student.  Positive information should be shared as well as concerns.
  • Examples might include communicating about behaviors, homework assignments, current or upcoming events at school or home that may impact the student's behavior or attendance, and student medical or other appointments.
  • Include use of the Communication Log in your child's IEP or 504 Plan.
