Telehealth Reduces Wait Times, Improves Care for Children with Autism

Long wait times have been a persistent issue for families waiting to see an autism specialist, with waits often exceeding a year. Additionally, children with autism living in rural areas have added costs associated with traveling long distances for health care. To address these issues, ECHO Autism, a University of Missouri program, has been training primary care providers to diagnose and manage autism spectrum disorders. ECHO Autism is now expanding to new communities, states and countries.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
