Abstract: Working with families with communication and learning difficulties can require health visiting skills other than those taught on the formal health visitor training course, writes Val Rose. She describes how she approached the problems of one such family with a new-born baby, and the resulting design of a simple feed calculator and communication card which enabled parents and professionals to ensure the baby was being adequately nourished.
