Concerned your child has Autism. Ask your child's pediatrician for a referral to the Doernbecher Child Development Resource Center (CDRC) for an evaluation. Wait times can be long, so ask for additional referrals. The Corvallis Clinic has two psychologists who do Autism evaluations, Dr. Joyce Fusek, and Dr. Jennifer Hogansen.
Ask your school to evaluate your child for an IEP. This will likely be met with A LOT of resistance, as school's struggle to meet the needs of these students, and will often strongly discourage or hold off on IEPs in favor of a 504 plan, which has far fewer standards. Here is a guide by Disability Rights Oregon that details your rights and the process of getting your child evaluated for help in his/her/their school environment.
