Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. know how to design and implement behavioral interventions in virtual settings.
  2. know how to measure target behaviors in virtual settings.
  3. understand technology needed for telehealth.
  4. know how to train and collaborate with caregivers in virtual settings.


The current study examined the feasibility of caregiver-mediated telehealth and the efficacy of errorless learning (EL) in improving greeting skills of a child with autism. Results showed a high fidelity of caregiver-implemented intervention and a moderate to high efficacy of EL across three different measurements of greeting skills. Participants will learn about EL design and implementation, caregiver-mediated interventions, and behavior measurements in virtual settings.
