Making a Referral

Referral Process

 

Step 1: Submitting a Referral

We require a physician referral for our patients to ensure collaborative care. We also require completion of an Intake Packet and supplemental materials from your child's teacher prior to scheduling your first appointment.

Please contact our Scheduling Department to request a referral packet. When you receive the referral packet, ask your child's primary care provider to complete and submit a referral form.

 

Step 2: Collecting Supplemental Information

When we receive a referral for your child, our Scheduling Department will contact you to gather additional information about your child. We will ask for results from any tests your child has already received as well as copies of your child's Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan. You will need to contact your child's doctors and teachers for this information and ask them to mail the materials to our Scheduling Department.

We will also mail materials for you to fill out about your child's health and developmental history. Please fill out these materials and mail them to our Scheduling Department.

 

Step 3: Scheduling the Appointment

Our Scheduling Department will contact you to schedule an appointment after all of the supplemental materials have been received. Please contact our schedulers directly if you are unsure if your child's materials have been received.

Currently, waitlist for evaluation is  expected to be 10-18 months in Portland and 6-12 months in Eugene. 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.

If you require assistance prior to your visit, please check our Resources page or contact our Family Navigator at 503-494-0604 or by e-mail.
