UW ECHO 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.


This program operates in partnership with the Wyoming Family Mentorship program
to provide ongoing support to families as they help their children thrive.


Sessions are on Wednesdays, bi-weekly,
12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. MT

Managing Your Child's Screen Time: An Opportunity to Practice Self-Regulation

Screens are constantly tempting and testing our abilities to self-regulate every day, sometimes every hour.  These devices are particularly attractive to young children.  We as families, caregivers, and educators, must teach our children how to manage and respect technology.  Join us to discuss and share strategies to help teach our children self-regulation skills when managing their screen time.
