The Education Evaluation Center (EEC) was created by Oregon's Education
superintendent in 1962 to address the needs of Oregon's individuals with
disabilities. For over 50 years, the EEC has offered quality,
comprehensive assessment services to individuals age three through
adult. The EEC specializes in assessing an individual's disability as
well as his or her functional skills, strengths, weaknesses, and
capacities. Our team follows a collaborative approach throughout the

accommodations are made across multiple settings including home, school,
college, work, and community. All EEC team members are nationally
and/or state certified with significant experience in the field of
special education. Our team is also experienced in providing assessment,
consultation, graduate coursework, and in-service training.
