Measuring the effects of training parents to provide intervention via the Arizona Telemedicine Program  

Using a randomized clinical trial, researchers will evaluate the efficacy of using telemedicine as a tool for providing immediate feedback and continued support for parents. The dependent measures, parent fidelity of implementation of pivotal response treatment (PRT) and functional verbalizations produced by the child, will be collected by each parent-child dyad at baseline, post-initial in-person parent training, and again at follow-up. In addition, the study will look at the associations among cognitive functioning, adaptive behavior, and the response to PRT. Project Status
