Schiefelbusch Institute for Life Span Studies, UCEDD/LEND


Presenters from Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, and Wyoming will explore how the ECHO model has been adapted to meet the goals of all UCEDDs and LENDs. The diversity of applications will be highlighted including use with primary care pediatricians, tele-health, education, self-advocates, families and specific conditions (autism, neonatal abstinence syndrome, etc.). The flexibility of the model and its novel approach to reducing disparities and building capacity will be discussed.
