Health Care at the Institute

The OHSU Institute on Development and Disability provides health care services to the most vulnerable populations throughout the State of Oregon, Southwest Washington, the Pacific Northwest, and beyond.

Through clinical and outreach programs detailed below, the Institute works hard to ensure that Oregonians with disabilities are receiving the best care possible.

The Child Development and Rehabilitation Center

The Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC) has two permanent locations in Oregon.
  • The Portland programs are located on the 7th floor of Doernbecher Children's Hospital. 

  • The Eugene programs are located at the Clinical Services Building on the University of Oregon campus.

LEND Clinic

In collaboration with both the CDRC and LEND Training Program, the LEND clinic provides full team diagnosis for our patients, while also allowing our trainees to practice directly with trained senior staff.


The Oregon Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Needs (OCCYSHN) Program provides technical support for CCN teams, as well as training focused on building local capacity to serve OCCYSHN.

Outreach Programs

The CDRC provides outreach clinic activities throughout the year. From preschool screenings in Tillamook to hemophilia clinics in Eastern Oregon, the CDRC has a statewide mission to reach as many children and adults with special health needs as possible. The IDD also provides services across the state through several outreach clinics that are offered on a regular basis for multiple disciplines in several locations.
