The HOPE Notebook

The HOPE Notebook (Helping Organize and Prepare Effectively) is an organizational system to help parents, family members and caregivers of individuals with disabilities manage information associated with those individuals.

In caring for an individual with special health care or educational needs, you receive paperwork and information from a wide array of sources. This system will help you organize all of that information in one location so that you can find it when you need it. And, by keeping the information in a central location, it becomes easier to share information with others who are part of the individual’s educational or health care team.

It is intended to reside in a three-ring binder, so that copies of medical diagnoses, educational plans, evaluations and other documents can be inserted.

We provide pre-assembled HOPE Notebooks, in binders with tabbed dividers, when possible. If you are interested in obtaining notebooks, please contact us at
