Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC)


Every year, the OHSU Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC) serves more than 8,000 children, youth and adults with a wide range of disabilities and complex health needs. Founded more than 70 years ago, the CDRC is one of 61 national University Centers of Excellence in disabilities education, research and service.

The CDRC’s family-centered clinics specialize in genetic and metabolic disorders, complex syndromes, birth defects, cerebral palsy, cleft lip and palate, spina bifida and autism. Along with its primary location on the OHSU campus, CDRC has a permanent clinic site in Eugene to provide care to several hundred special needs children from the southern and central parts of our state.
