University of Wyoming ECHO in Assistive Technology (UW ECHO in AT)

ECHO logoUniversity of Wyoming ECHO in Assistive Technology (UW ECHO in AT) builds capacity for assistive technology in education.  Through ECHO technology, an interdisciplinary team of individuals working in education connect weekly to learn more about AT to apply in their schools and with their students.  

Four key components of the successful Project ECHO model were applied to the UW ECHO in AT design for use in education: the use of technology to leverage scarce resources, improving outcomes by reducing variations in AT services and sharing ‘best practices’, case-based learning, and the monitoring of outcomes.
