VKC TRIAD and the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (TN DIDD) invite BCBA’s/LBA’s to join us for an introductory overview of key ethical considerations in delivering behavior analytic services via telemedicine. VKC TRIAD regularly uses various modes of telepractice to reach and support families and educators in rural and low resource communities, and will share foundational information based on lessons learned and a broad expertise across a variety of telemedicine-based programming. This Webinar is hosted by TN DIDD, but is open to non-DIDD providers.

- Describe a process for individualizing a service model that incorporates evidence-based therapeutic approaches that a consultant can deliver remotely

Intended audience
- BCBAs, BCaBAs, and RBTs who serve clients through the DIDD system or that have similar client needs and characteristics (e.g. age 18+ with I/DD)

Topics covered
- Determining client needs, selecting appropriate assessment/treatment pathways, and supporting service delivery through telehealth

Topics not covered

  • Billing or insurance regulations relative to telehealth
  • COVID-19-specific regulations, guidance, or recommendations
