Telehealth & Autism: Treating Challenging Behavior at Lower Cost



A study "to determine whether challenging behavior in young children with autism and abstract other developmental disabilities can be treated successfully at lower cost by using telehealth to train parents to implement applied behavior analysis (ABA)."


This research demonstrated that parents can use ABA procedures to successfully treat behavior problems associated with autism spectrum disorders regardless of whether treatment is directed by behavior consultants in person or via remote video coaching.
