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 Project ECHO Autism Washington program at the University of Washington. The ECHO program increases COE clinicians’ 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.

There are two Project ECHO Autism cohorts. The Orange ECHO focuses on younger children; the Purple ECHO on all ages of children and youth.  For more information, please see the Project ECHO web page or contact the project coordinator at

Project ECHO IDD Wraparound

ECHO IDD Wraparound is a recurring telehealth program designed to provide training and support to Washington State’s community health care providers who work with children and young adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) and behavioral health needs.
