Is record keeping something you’ve been keeping up with?
Or is record keeping something that keeps slipping from your mind? Or, have you decided to roll up your sleeves and do it but when faced with the amount of paperwork you get too flustered to deal with the decisions – what to keep? What to toss? What do you need for transcripts one day? And what should you hang on to just in case you want a trip down memory lane?
Record keeping can get especially complicated when you’ve got an outside-the-box child with evaluations, therapist notes, and doctor’s recommendations. How do you sort through the everlasting paper trail and weed through what really matters?
