Description

School psychologists have been tasked to provide services remotely. However, questions continue to arise regarding treatment fidelity, legal and ethical responsibilities, and the breadth of services provided during this time. This poster presentation reports on the results of a systematic review of 20 years of telehealth research in school psychology and related fields. It highlights facilitators and barriers to conducting remote service delivery. The literature guides a discussion of future directions for research and practice.
