Making a Referral
How do I make a referral to the CDRC Autism Program?
While many insurance companies allow patients to self-refer, we prefer to work directly with each child's primary care physician to ensure collaborative care.
As a result, we do require a physician referral for most of our CDRC patients. Additionally, we have information we need prior to scheduling your initial appointment.
The first step is a referral from you child’s doctor or teacher.
If you feel your child should be evaluated for symptoms of autism, please ask your child’s primary care provider to contact us to make a referral.
When we receive a referral for your child, we will contact you to gather additional information such as results from any testing done so far, your child’s IEP or 504 plan, etc.
Upon referral, we have a 10-18 month wait list for evaluation.
Depending on your child’s age, your waitlist for evaluation is currently expected to be 10-18 months (the waitlist for our Eugene office is 6-12 months). We understand the wait can be difficult and will do our best to see your child as soon as possible.
Program expansion to better meet the needs of our community is currently underway.
