Iowa Child Health & Development Record

Iowa Child Health and Development Record

Iowa Child Health and Development Record (CHDR) forms are used to guide and document a child's health maintenance visits during the period from birth up to age 18. The CHDR forms include developmental milestones and potential red flags for referral, and are based on the Iowa EPDST Care for Kids Periodicity Schedule.

Iowa CHDR Forms

The Iowa CHDR forms help identify:

  • Risk factors in a child's life, such as nutrition concerns or family stressors; and
  • Developmental "red flags" that signal the need for further assessment and evaluation of delay or potential for delay.


Iowa Child Health and Development Record were developed with assistance and input from the:

    • Parental risk factors that signal the need for intervention
    • Nutrition
    • Medications
    • Immunizations
    • Lead screening
  • Space to note parental input about a child's development (parents are often the first to detect delay);
  • Anticipatory guidance information;
  • Referral resources; and
  • A place to note the comprehensive health care plan and follow-up orders for the child.
