Hesperian Health Guides
For a village rehabilitation worker who helps many children, writing notes or records can be important for following their progress. Also, parents of a disabled child may find that keeping simple records gives them a better sense of how their child is doing.
|Sample RECORD SHEETS included in this book|
|3.||Tests of nervous system|
|4.||Factors affecting child development|
|5.||Evaluation of progress|
|6.||Child development chart|
You can use these as a guide for getting and recording basic information. But you will want to follow with more detailed questions and examination, depending on what you find.
Sheets 1 and 2 will be useful for most disabled children. Sheets 3, 4, and 6 are for children who may have brain damage or seem slow for their age. Sheet 5 is a simple form for evaluating the progress of children 5 years old or older.
