Description

Description

The proposed research will study the effectiveness of delivering behavioral treatment for autism through telehealth methodology, which has the potential to overcome barriers that limit access to care in rural and other underserved areas. The study will target parents of children (ages 1 to 6 years) with autism. This study focuses on testing whether functional behavioral analysis and functional communication training, conducted through telehealth coaching, is effective in reducing disruptive behavior and increasing positive social behaviors in young children with autism spectrum disorders. The results of the proposed study should provide an evidence base on which to expand behavioral treatment options for families of children with autism spectrum disorders.
