What does Telemedicine mean for the Special Needs Population?

 

Telemedicine is an alternative for families who do not have direct access to healthcare services near them such as Applied Behavior Analysis. It is extremely beneficial because it helps to increase access to a larger population, is cost efficient, improves quality of healthcare, and also reduces travel time and other stressors for the family receiving telehealth services.
 
What is Remote Consulting?
 
The goal of Remote Consultation is to offer support and parent training to monitor, train and teach the parent how to run his or her own home ABA therapy program while under the guidance of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Remote Consulting consists of an intensive home-based ABA program that includes training for families of children affected by behavioral, developmental and intellectual disabilities such as Autism, ADHD/ADD, anxiety, dyslexia, conduct disorder, oppositional defiance, children in need of additional academic support as an alternative for parents who do not wish to receive ABA services in a centre-based setting but in their homes. During the Remote Consultation sessions, parents/caregivers learn how to incorporate ABA techniques.
 
What types of populations are suitable for Distance Consulting?
 
• Typically developing children with behavioral problems 
 
• Children with developmental/intellectual disabilities e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorders, Down syndrome 
 
• Children with learning disabilities e.g. ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia 
 
• Children with mental health diagnoses e.g. Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Conduct Disorder
 
• Parents seeking additional support for their child’s home program/parents who already have a home programme in place and want additional guidance and support 
 
• Parents who need help coordinating and supervision for the intervention programme they already have in place 
 
• Parents who are unable to find effective local training and support to understand their child’s specific needs and want to learn behavior management methods/techniques to help him or her. 
 
It is very important for all parents and practitioners to know that before a child is accepted into a Remote Consultation ABA Programme, the practitioner must take precautionary measures to ensure the child is a prime candidate for a virtual consulting programme.
