PEI CE day Oct 2007 Be Flexible, Be Creative: Some youth may want to use the larger booklet exclusively (at home as well as at all appointments) while other may prefer the passport as their main Med Ed resource. The Med Ed resources should be used in a way that maximizes their value and fits the youth’s preferences and needs. When one of the resources is finished (gets filled up or is damaged or is lost) replace it with a new one.
