Autism

Evaluation and treatment for autism spectrum disorders

We provide diagnosis and treatment for children with symptoms of autism. Our goal is to provide the best and most complete care for your child and your family in a supportive and caring environment. We believe you are your child’s best advocate.

You and your child will work with a team of specialists.

Our team includes clinical psychologists, developmental pediatricians, speech/language pathologists, occupational therapists, audiologists, physical therapists, and a family consultant. We work together to understand and address your child’s unique needs.

Autism Treatment Network

We are proud to be a member of the Autism Treatment Network, a group of 15 university-based medical centers across the country who are dedicated to improving the quality of treatment options for children with autism and their families.

A referral from your child's doctor or teacher is required

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 and treatment.

Depending on your child’s age, your waitlist for evaluation and treatment 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.
