Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an evidence-based, peer-to-peer learning model that has proven successful worldwide and across fields of healthcare, assistive technology, and education. Lisa Rossignol shares how Parents Reaching Out (PRO in NM) plans to support diverse trained families using ECHO, as well as potential uses of ECHO to support family organizations as a follow up to Serving on Groups Train-the-Trainer regional workshops, to provide further support to trainers, and to facilitate connections among the trained family organizations who will be training diverse families. This webinar is an introduction to Project ECHO components and provides examples of current “clinics” working with families and strategies to adapt the Project ECHO model to meet the organization’s needs.
