Project ECHO ® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that is designed to build capacity of individuals around the state to provide evidence-based services. The heart of the ECHO model is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks. Families are key members of our ECHO development teams and leadership Hubs. Hub teams (specialists and family members) and spokes (ECHO participants) create knowledge-sharing networks in a learning loop:
- Community providers learn from specialists and family members
- Community providers learn from each other
- Specialists learn from community providers and families as best practices emerge
