Making a Referral
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, our Scheduling Department will contact you to gather additional information. We will ask for results from any tests already received as well as copies of an Individualized Education Program (IEP or IFSP) or 504 Plan. You will need to contact your 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 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 materials have been received.
Currently, waitlist for evaluation is expected to be 3-12 months in Portland (wait times may be shorter at the Eugene clinic). 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.
