Center for the Advancement of Youth (CAY) Training for Primary Care Providers

The overall goal of the CAY-ECHO program is to improve the developmental, behavioral, and mental health of Mississippi children ages 0-21 by increasing the capacity and confidence of primary pediatric providers to identify and manage pediatric behavioral, emotional, and developmental disorders within the medical home. 

The CAY ECHO series will provide education to pediatric primary care providers throughout the state about early childhood development, pediatric behavioral health and best practices. Childhood development and pediatric behavioral health can be screened, diagnosed and treated inside of the medical home and proper education is crucial to ensuring positive patient outcomes. 

CAY ECHO topics include: 

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder 
  • Tic and Tourette’s Syndrome 
  • Minority Behavioral Health 
  • Infant Loss 
  • Anti-Bullying 

How ECHO Works 

The CAY ECHO meeting is hosted on the Zoom video conferencing platform. It is held every 2nd and 4th Thursday from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. CDT. Providers will receive case submission links once they have registered as participants.
