Abstract

Intervention services positively impact outcomes of children with special needs and their families. However, families face many burdens when accessing high-quality intervention services such as availability of providers, time, and cost; these burdens are often magnified for underserved families. As such, there is a high need to determine if providing services via telehealth is acceptable to reaching these families. To fill this gap in the field, we developed “Early Discovery” an telehealth prevention education program tailored specifically for high risk preschool age children. This framework aided in identifying successful intervention components that can be widely disseminated with the ultimate goal of serving families that can be aided via telehealth.
