In some cases, AAI will provide your family with a remote BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst.  All RBTs (Registered Behavior Technician), the professional working one-on-one with your child, is in-person.  

Telehealth, or the use of technology to deliver healthcare services remotely, is a valuable option for providing BCBA (Board Certified Behavior Analyst) supervision in rural communities for several reasons:

  1. Improved access to care: In rural communities, it can be difficult for individuals to access services services due to a lack of providers or long distances to travel. Telehealth can help to bridge this gap by allowing individuals to receive exceptional support from a distance, without the need to travel long distances.                                                                                                                                            

  2. Increased convenience: Telehealth can be more convenient for individuals in rural communities, as it allows them to receive care from the comfort of their own home or other location of their choice. This can be especially important for individuals with mobility challenges or for those who have difficulty accessing transportation.                                                      

  3. Cost savings: Telehealth can be more cost-effective for both individuals and providers, as it can reduce the need for expensive travel or time off work.                                                                           

  4. Without Telehealth, the significant number of families we are privileged to work with would not be receiving service.

 Together, these resources help autistic individuals and their families receive the support and services they want, no matter where they live.
