ECHO Autism UCI Research Study

Wish you knew more about Autism? Want to learn more about the different resources available to you and your patients? Do you want free CME credits? Then join the ECHO Project!

The Center for Autism & Neurodevelopmental Disorders is conducting a research study and we need your help! In this study, we are looking to determine and evaluate the effectiveness of the Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) model in providing primary care providers (i.e. pediatricians, nurse practitioners, family practice physicians, etc.) with education specific to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The ECHO model utilizes video-conference sessions to provide the care providers free mentorship and education in a specialty area through didactic presentations alongside case-presentations, expert feedback and group discussion.


The study will take over the course of 6 months with 2 video conference calls a month. You will have access to a specialist team consisting of a developmental behavioral pediatrician, nutritionist, family navigator, psychologist and parent expert.

You are eligible to participate in this study if you:
1. Are currently practicing as a primary care provider (PCP).
2. Are currently providing care for children.
3. Have professional training in: general pediatrics, family medicine, advanced practice nursing (i.e. nurse practitioner or physician assistant).
4. Have an active medical license in your state of practice.
5. Have a patient population that is at least 50% underserved.
