ECHO for Education

Release time, geographic isolation/location, lack of specialty knowledge and expertise, and an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues, is an ongoing struggle for educators, administrators, special service providers and other staff in the educational setting in rural/frontier locations.  The ECHO model offers discussion and coaching opportunities with an interdisciplinary group of highly skilled educators and professionals as a way to build capacity in the application of effective practices supporting classroom, school, district, and student outcomes. The UW ECHO in Education networks provide ongoing support for professionals working with students in the PreK-12 setting by offering consistent virtual professional development, specific program planning and evidence-based strategies, allowing participants a real-time option to learn about and share best practices.


Important Update: UW ECHO education networks will continue to run as scheduled, with WIND faculty and staff now facilitating these sessions remotely. These changes in operation are required by the University of Wyoming in response to the COVID-19 situation, and they will minimally impact the delivery of Project ECHO.

Please contact us as you normally would via e-mail or phone. There might be a slight delay in response.

In this time of isolation and uncertainty, consider attending these ECHO sessions especially as a means of enhancing professional connections and knowledge. Please know that the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities continues to be committed to improving the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing information, training and technical assistance to families, professionals and communities.

Zoom Security: The Wyoming Institute of Disabilities (WIND) is aware of current Zoom security concerns.  UW ECHO will continue to utilize Zoom.  We are implementing best practice measures to enhance the security of our programs, faculty, staff and participants. We encourage our partners and network members to also implement the following strategies.
