National ECHO Teams- Nationwide Children's Participation

ECHO Center Development

As the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder increases, so do demands for specialty services. ASD specialty centers report varying infrastructure and service delivery processes creating large variations in care. The Autism Treatment Network (ATN), consisting of 12 specialty centers throughout North America has a focus on developing and disseminating best practices for the core and associated medical and mental health conditions in ASD.  ATN centers disseminate these findings directly to community providers using the Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) model. This project expands the use of the ECHO model by bringing together ASD specialty care teams with the goal of sharing common challenges, learnings and successes within practice protocols, unique business management ideas, and standardized and novel treatment and prescribing procedures.

ECHO Autism: Transition to Adulthood

Transition to Adulthood aims to help pediatric and adult practitioners care for their patients with autism spectrum disorder and ease the process of transition to adult healthcare. This virtual learning opportunity allows primary care teams to share complex cases and receive cutting-edge, expert advice from top autism specialists in an “All Teach, All Learn” model.
