Selected goals are also listed in subsequent PSTs, so clinicians are reminded to follow-up on progress. The 504 plan and IEP letters can be automatically generated as well as post-visit messages tailored to the parent’s goals and challenges. Printable handouts and local resources are all accessible to the parent online in the CHADIS MemoryBook Care Portal. Measure #366 (NQF 0108) Ages 6 - 12.
