Primary Lead Programs

Wyoming Institute for Disabilities and its partners will identify and provide ongoing technical assistance to train Primary Lead Programs and their interdisciplinary teams to implement the NAS Interdisciplinary Training Model (ECHO-SCOPE) on emerging knowledge and evidence-based practices in screening, monitoring and interdisciplinary care for children impacted by NAS, trauma, or related exposure.  

The Long-term Outcomes of this National Training Initiative are to:

  • Close gaps in access and delivery of quality education, treatment, and support services for young children, aged 0 – 5 and families impacted by Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome or by related substance exposure in 16 states by 2022. 

  • Build interdisciplinary provider capacity and confidence in applying evidence-based practices in serving this population in targeted states each year of the project period.


Primary Lead Programs will be expectated to:

  • Attend virtual orientation session to address the following topics: (1) introduction to the ECHO model, identifying key stakeholders for interdisciplinary state team, (2) introduction to opioid crisis, NAS and trauma, and, (3) social determinants of health and cultural competency. 

  • Attend an two-day ECHO immersion training to address the following topics: (1) ECHO model to include standard evaluation, and (2) implementation of ECHO-SCOPE.

  • Identify an interdisciplinary team.

  • Attend an in-person and/or virtual strategic planning session for the Primary Lead Programs and their identified interdisciplinary state teams in order to finalize implementation strategy and launch the ECHO-SCOPE. Topics will include but are not limited to: (1) engagement strategies for interdisciplinary state teams, (2) adaptation of NAS interdisciplinary curriculum, (3) curriculum implementation strategies, (4) curriculum implementation strategies, and (5) sustainability planning.

  • Implement ECHO-SCOPE within their own states and with identified interdisciplinary state teams utilizing the ECHO model.

  • Work collaboratively with WIND to ensure rigorous evaluation of ECHO-SCOPE and outcomes of the national training initiative.


Primary Lead Programs will receive a stipend in order to support costs associated with the implementation of ECHO-SCOPE in their respective states.

  • $5,000 to support training costs, attendance to the virtual orientation session(s) and additional travel costs associated with the in-person ECHO Immersion training

  • $7,500 to support the Primary Lead Program's ECHO-SCOPE implementation, including incentives to ECHO-SCOPE participants that participate in the questionnaire component of the implementation (pre/post-test), and honorarium fees for speakers

  • $5,000 for every subsequent ECHO-SCOPE implementation
