The signs of learning and thinking differences aren’t always clear, and families may not know how to make sense of what they’re seeing. They may feel overwhelmed, not knowing who to turn to for information. 

That’s why Understood has partnered with AAP to launch Take N.O.T.E. It’s a simple memory device to help families spot signs of learning and thinking differences, look for patterns, and become empowered to seek support. Pediatricians play an important role in this process.

What is Take N.O.T.E.?

English: Step 1 notice, Step 2 Observe, Step 3 Talk, Step 4 Engage; Español: Paso 1 notice, Paso 2 Observe, Paso 3 Talk, Paso 4 Engage

N.O.T.E. stands for:

  • Notice if there’s something going on with your child that’s out of the ordinary.

  • Observe and keep track of patterns.

  • Talk with other people who can help support your child, like pediatricians, teachers, and other caregivers.

  • Engage your child to get information and explore options for what to do next.

Parents and caregivers are guided through activities to gather insights with and about their child. The program encourages them to engage with a trusted professional, like their pediatrician, to determine what to do next. This may include seeing a specialist or having their child evaluated. Families need guidance through this process. And you play a key role in getting the best help possible for their child. Use the resources below to support you as you support children and families.
