About the ECHO PD Model

Our Early Childhood ECHO PD is intended to increase the capacity of early childhood professionals by providing equitable access to high quality evidenced based training opportunities throughout Arizona.

Project ECHO© is an innovative virtual model led by expert teams that use multi-point video conferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions about evidence-based practices in early childhood programs and services. ECHO provides group learning and sharing and is designed as an all teach, all learn event. 

ECHO is provided free of charge. Participants earn continuing education credits.
