Project ECHO Autism Washington

Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is a collaborative model of medical education and care management that empowers clinicians to provide better care to more people right where they live.

Autism Center of Excellence (COE) clinicians are eligible to participate in the ECHO Autism Washington program at the University of Washington. The ECHO program increases COE clincians’ skills in the diagnosis and management of autism using case-based learning, didactics and expert consultation so that they can care for autistic patients in their home practices.

In the first year (Dec 2019-Dec 2020) this twice-monthly tele-mentoring program has had a cohort of 25 PCPs from across Washington state. Participants must first complete the COE training to be offered a spot. A new ECHO cohort will be enrolled in fall 2020 to start in January 2021.
