ECHO® Autism

The goal of ECHO Autism is to train primary care clinicians to increase their confidence in identifying and treating autism symptoms and broaden their knowledge about behavioral treatments.

ECHO Autism at URMC is a research study meant to examine if this is an effective form of training for primary care providers. This study is being conducted in partnership with the Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P), the Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network (ATN), and the Thompson Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders at the University of Missouri.

Because this is a research study, there is no open enrollment at this time.

Structure and Schedule

Each teleECHO™ session consists of two case presentations by primary care providers and a didactic presentation by the hub team.

Sessions occur the first and third Fridays of every month for 2 hours, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
