ECHO IDD Wraparound Didactic Topics

Project ECHO DiagramThe program’s interdisciplinary resource team includes experts from the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Autism Center, and others. We offer biweekly didactic presentations of 15—20 minutes in length followed by a brief question and answer period. The didactics cover a broad range of IDD and behavioral health topics focusing on evidence-based practices useful for community health providers serving children and youth with IDD and behavioral health needs.

Slides, articles, and references from these presentations are made available to both ECHO participants and other community health providers.

Didactic Topics for Learning and Discussion Include:

  • Introduction to autism
  • Managing caregiver stress
  • Crisis services
  • Interventions for communication and language
  • Introduction to applied behavior analysis and functions of behavior
  • Psychiatric co-occurring conditions and interventions
  • Self-advocacy and neurodiversity
  • Treating youth with anxiety and depression
