The World Health Organisation declared the outbreak of Covid-19 a pandemic on the 11th March 2020, which forced many countries around the world into national lockdowns. With social contact limited and people advised to stay at home, many behaviour analytic providers had to quickly transfer traditional face-to-face services to online platforms without much (or any) experience of delivering services this way. Drawing on research and “lessons learned,” this webinar will discuss some strategies for effectively using telehealth for behaviour analytic service provision. The webinar will present current research on the use of telehealth, as well as providing practical recommendations for service delivery, including solutions on overcoming technology difficulties, preparing for an effective session, and effectively training caregivers via videoconferencing software. It also will examine the costs and benefits of telehealth-based provision when compared to face-to-face delivery.
