Project SCOPE (Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic)

The University of Cincinnati UCEDD/LEND is involved in two training initiatives focusing on educating childcare professionals on the impact of the opioid crisis on young children.


We are proud to partner with The Wyoming Center for Disabilities and The Nisonger Center at The Ohio State University on this project and are in the process of training 16 other states in the SCOPE ECHO model. 10 states have been recruited so far for Cohort 1 and training will begin in July. The idea is that these states will be able to run their own program in the next 1-2 years.

In addition to this training, the Ohio team is running Project SCOPE as an example for other states beginning August 7. More information to come on how to get involved.
