When the Covid-19 pandemic forced hundreds of applied behavior analytic (ABA) companies to stop face-to-face services, many practitioners rushed to switch their service delivery format to telehealth. This shift allowed practitioners to continue their crucial services with clients and their families. Although telehealth was an essential and helpful switch for practitioners, stay-at-home orders are now being lifted and many are going back to face-to-face services. However, given the extensive amount of time and money it takes to establish telehealth services, it might be beneficial for ABA companies to explore how they can utilize their newly established service modality in creative ways. Before the pandemic, many behavior analysts were using telehealth as a way to reach clients in rural or under-served areas. Additionally, outside of behavior analysis, many other fields have seen the benefits of using telehealth as a way to maximize service delivery. In this workshop, we will review strategies that ABA practitioners can use to set up their newly formed telehealth services to increase treatment effects and improve the overall quality of services.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify the correct definition of telehealth

2. Identify different ways telehealth has been used in behavior analysis

3. Identify ways that telehealth can be made a permanent part of the behavior analyst's practice.
