You can use this tool for any kind of event or activity. This can be:
- introducing new food in the diet
- going to a sports club
- being in a new class
- starting with a new method of support or a new professional
Learning Log can be very useful in new situations because it helps to develop the best practice more quickly. But it can also be helpful when you want to check that existing routines or familiar activities are still enjoyable for your child.

Learning Logs should be used when there is a large group of people involved in the support that your child receives. This tool enables people to record their observations and share them with others and that in turn leads to more consistent support.
