Biography

Cynthia Green, M.S. CCC-SLP is a Speech-Language Pathologist at the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center, which is part of the Institute on Development and Disability. Clinically, she works on interdisciplinary teams in the assessment and differential diagnostic process, as well as in follow-along clinics that provide periodic assessment and supports through an individual’s lifespan.   Her practice and expertise is focused in two primary areas:

In the Autism and Child Development clinics, Ms. Green works with school-aged children and adolescents with cognitive-behavioral and neurodevelopmental disorders, with a specific focus on Autism and ADHD as well as co-occurring conditions, including communication disorders in the context of executive function disorder, learning disabilities, mood, and behavior disorders. Her experience has primarily been in the area of differential diagnostics, with a functional perspective for providing community supports, including transition services.

In the Neurodevelopmental Clinic, Ms. Green works with children and young adults with complex neuro-motor disorders, including cerebral palsy, Rett and other syndromes, and congenital or acquired brain differences. Her clinical focus with this population is quantification of functional communication skills, as well as providing guidance to families about effective intervention supports and care coordination in the community. 

In addition to her clinical work, Ms. Green instructs and trains graduate student clinicians and clinical fellows, as well as cross trains individuals from allied disciplines. Ms. Green’s perspective and passion has always been to focus on a functional approach to assessment and intervention, and her experience as a clinical instructor at OHSU, as well as her experience as an adjunct instructor at Portland State University, have been opportunities to share this perspective with future clinicians.
