Autism Specialist Support for Primary Care

Many communities in Missouri have no meaningful access to expert autism care, and families touched by autism need medical support in their home communities.

Get autism specialist knowledge in a virtual learning network with University of Missouri providers. With ECHO Autism, you’ll learn about best practices and evidence-based care for children with autism and developmental behavioral concerns. ECHO Autism clinics take place year round from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of the month.
