Video: Parent Perspective on Telehealth


In this presentation, Lex Gingell from the ASERT Western Region, interviews a parent about their experiences with telehealth for their two children. This interview includes a parent’s perspective on successful telehealth as well as specific tips and examples for direct support professionals as they work to provide services for families.

Key Takeaways:

    • An abundance of research shows us that behavioral health visits by video conferencing are just as effective as being seen face to face!
    • Remember, in order to have successful telehealth visits, it requires preparation ahead of time, close communication between the family and the provider, consistency, dedication and trust.
