Project SCOPE (Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic)

Project SCOPE: Supporting Children of the OPioid Epidemic, is a national training initiative intended to build nationwide provider capacity and confidence in applying evidence-based practices in screening, monitoring, and interdisciplinary support for children and families diagnosed with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (NOWS), or who are suspected of being impacted by opioid use, trauma, or related exposure.

The Wyoming Institute for Disabilities partners with the Nisonger Center at The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities for this project. This initiative will build upon the effective ECHOTM virtual training model and developed for the 2018-2019 pilot supported by the Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities through the Association of University Centers on Disabilities.
