Alex's Story

Our little guy first appeared at OHSU at two and a half years old for an autism screening at the CDRC. Our primary care doctor wanted us to rule it out and we at the time were living two and a half hours away. We drove down after hearing how fantastic the diagnostic team at OHSU was. By the end of the testing we were told that he was autistic.

Alex has become a regular face at OHSU since we have relocated to be closer to the occupational therapists, the psycology team, and Dr. McCoy. We have found the staff at OHSU to be the best around. Alex is now almost 6 and has made such amazing progress!
