Celebrating 100th Anniversary

CDRC Provides clinical services for persons with developmental disabilities and other special health care needs through a team approach at 2 locations in Portland and Eugene OR.

“When CDRC first started, focus was on treatment of children affected by diasabilities like polio, rickets, and club feet – disabling conditions we rarely think about today – but over the past century out responsibilities have changed. CDRC has a mission that goes beyond physical disabiliities – including public health, autism, genetics, metabolic disaorders, birth defects, and disabilities that affect people across the lifespan.”
