Early Childhood

UW ECHO in Early Childhood increases the capacity of early childhood professionals to identify and implement best practices in areas that include early literacy, transitions, behavior support and identification, and referral detection.

Network participants include case managers/family service coordinators, general educators, home day care providers, paraeducators, related service providers (OT’s, PT’s, SLP’s, etc.), school administrators, school directors, school counselors, school psychologists, social workers, special educators, state agency staff and all others interested in improving outcomes for students in the early childhood setting.

UW ECHO in Early Childhood is a collaboration with the Wyoming Department of Education and the Wyoming Department of Health.

Sessions are held every other Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m. via Zoom videoconferencing technology.
