Project SCOPE was a collaboration between the Wyoming Institute for Disabilities (WIND), University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCCEDD), and The Ohio State - Nisonger Center. The Nisonger Center and the UCCEDD developed a curriculum, and WIND leveraged their expertise with the ECHO™ training model to structure the implementation of this curriculum.
The Nisonger Center and the University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities developed a curriculum with topics focused on:
Current research on brain development
Developmental outcomes of prenatal exposure to opioid and other substances
Trauma informed care
Provider secondary trauma stress
Strategies to support caregivers and the impacted children
The Wyoming Institute for Disabilities trained sites on implementation of the ECHO model, designed to increase workforce capacity through education on best practice implementation.
Project SCOPE adopted the ECHO Model to provide ongoing resources and support for participants. The heart of the ECHO model is its knowledge-sharing networks, where subject matter experts meet virtually with a community of learners representing interdisciplinary teams of participants to share knowledge and improve implementation of best practices.
“Our experience implementing Project SCOPE has taught us how effective this teaching model can be, especially with regard to reaching providers and professionals around the state who would otherwise not have ready access to this information. We will certainly keep this in mind when considering trainings on other related topics.”
