ECHO-Chicago: Pediatric ADHD-Fall 2020

September 10, 2020 to December 10, 2020
The ECHO-Chicago ADHD curriculum is designed to address one of the most common chronic childhood disorders in the United States. It is estimated that 9% of children ages 3-17 have an ADHD diagnosis. Poverty further increases a child’s risk for ADHD with greater prevalence among children living below the poverty level. Disparities in access to care for children living with ADHD are linked to race and ethnicity. African American boys living in poverty are the most likely to be referred for mental health services and among the least likely to receive these services. ECHO-Chicago training provides primary care providers with the skills and knowledge to deliver care to children at risk for ADHD in their local community health center.
The goal of the Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO-Chicago) is to provide training for community-based primary care providers in the management of common, complex, chronic conditions such as Pediatric Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in order to improve provider knowledge and self-efficacy and patient health outcomes.
