Though the COVID-19 pandemic has brought many challenges related to securing and maintaining access to applied behavior analysis (ABA) intervention for children with autism, it also brought forth an opportunity to evaluate changes in treatment and supervision modalities, intensity of treatment, and overall access to intervention on outcomes. For many ABA agencies, insurance-funded medically necessary ABA has changed in many ways since the onset of the pandemic and brought a need for effective supervision on programs. One way to meet the increased needs is in the form of Telehealth, or remote, supervision. This study examines the effects of in-person and remote supervision; determining that remote supervision is as effective as in-person supervision on RBT Integrity and child behavior. Join Dr. Farley as she examines the overall effects of both in-person and remote supervision, identifies pre-Covid Telehealth research, identifies barriers related to ABA-based Telehealth, and pinpoints areas of need for future research.
