Clinical Education Efficacy and Services ECHO

Program Goal

Our mission is to connect with our community partners to collaborate and share evidence-based practices in order to create future speech-language pathologists, educators and healthcare providers with critical problem-solving skills and expertise.

The Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (ECHO) platform will link graduate student clinicians, student teachers and their supervisors/mentors to interdisciplinary specialist teams and experts to share best practices. The specialist teams mentor and share their expertise across a virtual network via case-based learning, enabling future speech-language pathologists, educators and healthcare providers to improve educational and health outcomes for all the people they serve.

About the Clinical Education Efficacy and Services (CEES) ECHO

The CEES ECHO meets every other week on Thursdays from 5—6:30 p.m. These online Zoom sessions are free and led by ASU faculty. Participants will receive continuing education credit.

Each 75-minute session includes a short didactic presentation from an expert, as well as case presentations and discussion by all participants. Through ECHO’s model of "all teach and all learn," future SLPs, educators and healthcare providers will develop collaborative clinical problem-solving expertise to improve services for all individuals with communication disorders.

Who Should Attend?

  • SLP students and their SLP supervisors
  • Regular and Special Education students and their mentor teachers
  • Related service providers (O.T.,  P.T. AuD, Orientation and Mobility, School Psych, Counseling) and student interns in those fields.
