Supporting Child Behavior Using Tiered Parent Training via Telehealth

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 2,7
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. engage caregivers through the use of teleconsultation technology in constructive and creative ways.
  2. utilize tiered support models beyond traditional school-based direct behavior interventions.
  3. empower parents to provide evidence-based behavioral interventions in their home and community settings.
  4. provide consultation on applying appropriate behavioral strategies to parents with children who have mild to moderate behavioral and/or feeding difficulties.


Despite the impact of COVID-19, practitioners must continue to serve families through contemporary platforms. Indirect support, such as parent training and consultation, are a promising way to maximize the provision of behavioral health services for students. This presentation will describe a tiered intervention model delivered via telehealth to support the feeding behavior of children with mild feeding challenges. School psychologists may consider a similar model as a way to remotely serve students on their caseloads.
