Telehealth is the use of electronic technologies to provide clinical support between an individual with developmental/behavioral concerns and a clinical practitioner. The continued development of internet technology to deliver this service has made telehealth a viable option for delivering ABA therapy services to individuals during quarantine and those residing in rural and underserved geographic regions. Telehealth systems provide a live, interactive audio-video teleconferencing connection between the individual in need of ABA therapy services and the clinical provider. Developing interactive telehealth sessions incorporates both the individual's program goals and creates opportunities for Naturalistic Environment Teaching to anchor skills in the real-world environment. This webinar will cover the following topics to help you implement interactive telehealth sessions:

  • Establishing a Telehealth policy for your organization
  • Interactive Telehealth sessions
  • Training staff and caregivers using Telehealth sessions


The primary goals of the use of telehealth in the delivery of ABA therapy services:

  1. Enhance access to AA clinical services in a timely manner
  2. Improve efficiency of ABA clinical services
  3. Increase caregiver training to improve an individual's maintenance and generalization of behavior skills
