Screening Questionnaires for Development and Behavior: CHADIS
We are now starting to use a system called CHADIS to help us provide your family with a more complete analysis of your child's health and development. CHADIS stands for Child Health And Development Interactive System. It is a way you can communicate securely with your provider over the internet before your office visit. You can easily use CHADIS on a computer, tablet, or mobile phone.
Before your well visits you will receive notification from Chadis with the instructions.
Please fill out these forms BEFORE the appointment so results will reviewed by your doctor at the visit.

Why is it useful to me?
CHADIS is useful to parents because it helps prioritize your questions and concerns and guide your child's visit. While filling out CHADIS, you will be asked to provide your goals for the visit, share problems that you may be having, talk about anything you may be worried about in regards to your child. In this way, before your provider even walks into the room they know what you want the focus of the visit to be.
Why is it useful to my provider?
CHADIS poses a series of questions that thoroughly analyzes where your child is in terms of their development and health. Through CHADIS we are able to compare your child with where they are expected to be based on their age and track their development as time goes on. Regardless of whether or not you fill out CHADIS, we will ask certain questions when we are face to face with you to help assess development, but studies have shown that without online/paper questionnaires we are only able to identify approximately 30 percent of children with developmental delays. Identifying developmental delays is critical so that we can intervene earlier and give services to help your child thrive and succeed. For school aged children and adolescents, CHADIS helps to identify early signs of ADHD, depression, anxiety and other psychosocial concerns that also benefit from early identification and intervention.
