Technology to Support Teleconsultation in Behavior Analysis

Domain: Service Delivery
KIMBERLY MARTELL (Ball State University), Heather Skriba (Ball State University)

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised unique challenges for those who provide behavior analytic therapy. As a result of COVID-19, many behavior analysts have had to rapidly shift their service delivery methods from in-person therapy to telehealth. A variety of different technologies exist that can be used to facilitate behavior analytic teleconsultation when in-person services are not possible. In this presentation we will review a variety of technologies that can be used to support individuals during periods of quarantine and social distancing. Specifically, we will review the utility of web-cameras, Swivls, and teleconsultation robots to support behavior analytic consultation and intervention. We will review the cost, benefits, and limitations of each technology. Case examples will be included. Practical solutions to address potential barriers with each technology will be discussed. At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to identify the benefits and limitations of each technology to select the technology that will best meet the needs of individual clients.
