Abstract: Students who need social-emotional and behavioral supports receive their education in a variety of educational settings, and many times the staff who in those settings require additional supports to effectively support student achievement and outcomes. Considering the need for additional supports with student behavior, and the shortage of qualified school-based behavior health providers, available school consultants should consider options for using technology to help provide access to services to rural and underserved communities. This presentation will provide an overview of the problem-solving teleconsultation framework as a way to address the need for behavior supports in schools and give guidance for behavior analysts on different applications of behavioral teleconsultation services. The presentation will also review ethical considerations related to teleconsultation practice including technology access issues, privacy and security.
