Autism in Ocala:   We wish to open an Autism center here in Ocala Florida.  As previous board members of Ocala Autism Support Network, we were able to see first hand what families who have children on the Autism Spectrum needed and were missing.  In an effort to be able to provide these services, therapies and assistive devices, KidGenius was born.

It takes a village...

"The new numbers that are coming out about autism are not from the CDC but they do show exactly what I have been saying for years... The numbers are skewed. In a county such as ours the numbers noted do not reflect the actual amount of children due to various reasons such as many of us homeschool or find alternative sources of education as one report noted : "the CDC has acknowledged that its estimate has significant limitations. It’s based on an analysis of the medical and school records of 8-year-old children at monitoring sites across the country. As such, it can miss children who are not receiving medical or special education services related to autism." When services are being developed the need for services within a county are taken into consideration via these skewed numbers.. THIS is why we need to make some noise and let the world know we are here, through awareness we can create change." - Delsa Darline #ittakesavillage #marioncounty #autism #KidGenius

Project ECHO is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education and exponentially increases workforce capacity to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care doctors, nurses, and other clinicians learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.
