The Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO®) is an “all teach, all learn” framework that crosses disciplines aimed to create communities of practice for change. The mission of ECHO is to make knowledge accessible at the right time. Following the groundbreaking model developed by Dr. Sanjeev Arora at the University of New Mexico, every ECHO program is inclusive and nonhierarchical. The contribution of a single ECHO specialist contributes to the development of 20 or more local experts, who use their knowledge to positively impact the lives of people in their communities. ECHO breaks down geographic and cost barriers providing knowledge increase capacity of community experts.
The ECHO Autism Best Practices program aims to increase the capacity of school personnel in autism best practices to support autistic individuals
How Does ECHO® work?
Each 90-minute monthly ECHO Program session includes a de-identified case presentation by a community-based educational provider and a didactic presentation by the ECHO Autism team. Time is allowed for questions and answers.
ECHO program session occurs the third Thursday of each month.
