  • The Early Identification and Referral for Autism (EIRA) Project ECHO Program – Cognoa

NJAAP is leading an MOC part 4 QI program aimed at improving Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) screening among 30 pediatricians from 14 pediatric practices across the state and linking families to appropriate resources and services. The Early Identification and Referral for Autism (EIRA) Project ECHO program utilizes the hub and spoke Project ECHO framework while incorporating QI methodologies and multiple educational modalities. The goal of the program is to improve completion of autism specific screening at 18- and 24-month well child visits and increase referral to services at the time of screening. A series of eight virtual clinics aims to build a bi-directional learning community where participants learn from contents experts and each other. Overtime, the goal is that by participating on a regular basis, participants feel that they have attained the skills necessary to implement and sustain the changes and improvements gained throughout the project and gained self-efficacy around autism screening.
