Abstract: The prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) has increased markedly in recent decades, which has resulted in a high demand for providers of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy in the United States and internationally. In order to meet these increasing demands, ABA providers have found the Telehealth Service Delivery Model, which has received a growing interest over the past few years, as a viable option for ethical and effective ABA services. Telehealth services differ significantly from on-site services, as it requires clinicians to make special considerations when providing services remotely. This panel will discuss several critical areas related to the telehealth model, which include, but are not limited to, setting up a Telehealth program, using HIPAA-compliant technology, conducting effective assessments, providing ongoing remote supervision and parent training, as well as documentation and reporting. Each of the panel members will contribute their own unique experiences as they pertain to each of these key areas.
