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.

  • Local System Managers and Program Directors (“you”) work directly with Early Interventionists to build system-level capacity to serve infants and toddlers with autism and their families.  
  • A “hub team” based at VCU facilitates a virtual network connecting these local care teams
