Early Intervention Social Emotional ECHO

Welcome to the Early Intervention Social Emotional Extension for Community Health Outcomes or ECHO, a virtual network of experts in infant and toddler mental and social emotional health and early intervention. An ECHO model connects professionals with each other in real-time collaborative virtual sessions on Zoom. Participants present de-identified cases to one another, share resources, connect to each other, and grow in their expertise. This ECHO will be offered to early intervention providers and service coordinators as an opportunity to learn strategies to support families of infants and toddlers on topics related to infant mental health and social emotional well-being.

ECHO Model

The ECHO model connects professionals with each other in real-time collaborative virtual sessions on Zoom. Participants present de-identified cases to one another, share resources, connect to each other, and grow in their expertise.

We envision the ECHO model in early intervention through the diagram below.

  • Early Intervention providers and service coordinators ("you") learn strategies to support the social and emotional well-being of families, infants, and toddlers.
  • A “Hub team” based at VCU facilitates a virtual network connecting participants to resources and building relationships across the state.
