Training and Best Practices headerECHO for Families is a learning community that provides opportunities for learning, advocacy, and mentorship with families that have a child with developmental disabilities, autism, or other special healthcare needs. This network allows families to receive professional support and brainstorm evidence-based solutions or share successes with other families around the state and nation.

The UW ECHO for Families is the first ECHO network that provides information directly to families and can be accessed anywhere in the state.


Sessions are on Wednesdays, weekly,
12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. MT
via Zoom video conferencing technology.

Instructions for joining Zoom are available. Zoom also provides access for users with physical disabilities, blindness, and low vision through a range of keyboard shortcuts.
