The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 1 in 54 children in the United States have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), meaning that over 8,000 Idaho children are estimated to have ASD. American Academy of Pediatric guidelines state that early diagnosis and early intervention have significant outcomes.
Led by a panel of subject matter experts in pediatric family practice, pediatric psychiatry, developmental pediatrics, pediatric psychology, speech pathology, patient care coordination and parent advocacy, our 12-part series will help enhance your competencies and provide the opportunity to learn best practices for screening and treating ASD in pediatric care.
Participating in ECHO Idaho also helps you connect with other peers statewide to identify approaches and resources for advancing patient care and receive insightful feedback on patient cases. These sessions are designed to be collaborative, engaging and immediately applicable to your practice.
Series launch is Thursday, January 13, 2022.
Virtual sessions meet second and fourth Thursdays
Noon to 1 p.m. Pacific time / 1-2 p.m. Mountain time
