Telehealth provides an alternative modality of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) service which can be tailored to meet the unique and individual needs of clients across the globe. With rates of Autism on the rise, a steep increase in the need and desire of ABA has been noted in ample communities throughout the world. The lack of access to care, particularly in underserved communities, has always existed but has become more prevalent during the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals affected by Autism, whether it be children or adults, in developing countries have limited access to resources and qualified practitioners capable of providing services to those in need. QABA holds its certificants to the highest standards while advocating for ethical and efficient use of telehealth services for those with limited access to service. Telehealth can provide an advantage to individuals who reside in isolated and/or rural areas. The numerous benefits of telehealth services can offer to those in need include parent training, program modification, and access to care amongst many others. Telehealth is an innovative means of service delivery which can have a positive impact on individuals, families, and their communities.
