Telehealth and ABA: Practical Applications – Group
Research supports the effectiveness of applied behavior analysis delivered through Telehealth (e.g., Wacker et al., 2013; Vismara, McCormick, Young, Nadhan, & Monlux, 2013). The recent rise in social distancing has resulted in an increase in services needing to be delivered via telehealth. It is important for behavior analysts to obtain competency in delivery of telehealth services prior to using this type of service delivery model. This interactive webinar will focus on disseminating information to practitioners about effective telehealth service delivery based on the literature on this topic and the experience of the presenter who has delivered telehealth remote services effectively for the past 10 years.
- Attendees will be able to identify minimum requirements necessary for at least 1 type of telehealth service delivery model
- Attendees will be able to identify and use at least one resource relating to improving their skillsets for coaching and training via telehealth.
- Attendees will identify at least 1 research article demonstrating the effectiveness of telehealth services
- Attendees will be able to identify at least 2 benefits of providing remote telehealth services for families and caregivers when services are delivered competently
