WHY ECHO AUTISM WI?

Many communities in Wisconsin have no access to expert autism care, and families touched by autism need medical support in their home communities. Access to specialist knowledge improves lives, reduces health care costs, and improves access to care for thousands of children in Wisconsin.

TOPICS INCLUDE:
  • Screening and diagnosis
  • Resources and supports for children with autism and their families
  • Common medical concerns including feeding, constipation and sleep
  • Common behavioral and psychiatric concerns including anxiety, ADHD and aggression
HOW DOES IT WORK?
  • Join an online videoconference bi- weekly with our team of experts including developmental pediatrician, psychologist, social worker, and parent representative
  • Watch brief, high-yield didactic presentations by autism experts
  • Discuss case presentations by participating community providers
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
  • Free CME for healthcare professionals
  • Collaboration, support, and ongoing learning with autism experts
  • Improved care for patients with autism in the community
