Eugene Pediatric Psychology
The Child Development & Rehabilitation Center (CDRC) Pediatric Psychology Program is dedicated to improving the psychological, behavioral, emotional, and social well-being of children, adolescents, and young adults who experience disability, special health needs, behavioral/ psychological difficulties, and/or chronic illness through education, evaluation, and intervention.
Pediatric Psychologists are Child Psychologists with expertise in family-based care of youth with complex medical conditions, developmental disabilities, and special health care needs.
We are committed to providing high-quality services by using treatments and evaluation methods that are supported by research, that represent the most current practice standards, and which take into account individual differences. Our program focuses on the strengths of individuals and families. We aim to build upon those strengths while providing services that promote change and improved functioning.
Services We Provide
- Neuropsychological Assessment
- General Child/Adolescent Diagnostic Evaluations (e.g., ADHD/LD, anxiety disorders)
- Consultative Evaluations for individuals with complex medical conditions

We are committed to focusing on the whole person and ensuring that we appreciate the interplay between psychosocial and other medical or developmental issues.
As such, we readily and regularly consult with medical or other health care providers and defer to other disciplines on those issues that do not fall under the rubric of psychology.
Evaluation and Treatment
We conduct thinking evaluations to understand how problems with the brain may relate to problems seen at school, home, or with peers. Thinking skills evaluated include the ability to pay attention, remember, and solve problems. Neuropsychologists can help make or confirm a diagnosis or get a record of your child's functioning in the context of medical treatment. Conditions commonly assessed include: concussions or other brain injuries, epilepsy, cancer, hydrocephalus, spina bifida, complications of prematurity, diabetes, and other endocrine/metabolic disorders.
