Parent implemented training for autism through teleconsultation (PITA-T)  

This project will use a novel teleconsultation model in which video models and delayed video feedback are used to teach parents to perform ABA therapy. The project will address a need in West Virginia for children with ASD and other developmental disabilities for whom ABA is often not available due to lack of trained clinicians, geographic isolation and expense of treatment.
