Education Evaluation Center (EEC)

The EEC was established over 50 years ago by the Oregon Department of Education to provide a learning disability testing center available for use by school districts, parents and agencies. We have evolved into a fee-based service providing disability testing, in-service training and consultation services for school districts, parents and community service providers. We have received a great deal of anecdotal feedback from clients and families over the years, but have not yet conducted a follow-up research project.
