Families COVID-19 ECHO


Families of children experiencing behavioral challenges can be negatively impacted by school and clinic closures for COVID-19. This ECHO in Education: COVID-19 for Families will help caregivers support their school-aged children who are showing challenging behavior.

Interest Form⇾

Participants who complete the criteria of "full participation" will receive a $75 stipend.
Full participation consists of completing all pre- and post-surveys, participating in 7 out of 8 sessions, and submitting a form to present information about your child to the network.

How does it work?

ECHO in Education: COVID-19 for Families will meet virtually on Zoom for regularly scheduled 75-minute sessions. You will have a chance to discuss your child’s needs for real-time discussion and advice with specialists and other families.

Who is this network for?

Families with children who are at-risk for or diagnosed with developmental and behavioral needs (including autism, ADHD, intellectual disability, learning disability, and developmental delays) and are currently unable to access behavioral supports during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic are invited to participate.
