About the ECHO model

The Extension of Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) modelTM consists of a platform for both delivery of services and outcomes research, with the purpose of reducing health disparities by erasing barriers between specialty and primary care, particularly in underserved and remote areas. Using a videoconferencing system, Project ECHO achieves this goal by using a hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing approach where teams of expert specialists lead virtual clinics catered to health professionals in local communities.

Each session includes a didactic lecture on a specific topic followed by a case study by an attendee and group discussion.


ECHO-Autism: Co-Occurring Neurodevelopmental Conditions

The ACAR Clinic will host a 7-session virtual ECHO-Autism workshop, with a focus on co-occurring conditions related to autism, starting on Thursday, August 25, 2022 as part of its Clinical Capacity Building Program.

The ‘hub team’ panel of experts includes professionals from disciplines in genetics, neurology, neuropsychology, speech-language pathology, and developmental pediatrics, as well as a parent advocate.

More details coming soon.
