The Virginia Tech Autism Clinic & Center for Autism Research (VTCAR) is recruiting for a study for parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and behavioral difficulties. WHAT: We are offering a free month of telehealth support via a mobile application for parents of children with ASD and behavioral difficulties, and we are investigating the feasibility of using this application. Families will be randomly assigned to a one-session telehealth consultation with the enhancement of a mobile application over the course of 28 days or the one-session telehealth consultation with access to a mobile application with behavioral management resources over the course of 28 days. WHO: The research study aims to adapt a behavior consultation mobile application to improve telehealth support for parents of children with ASD (from ages 3-13 years) in need of behavioral support.WHERE: All sessions will be conducted via HIPAA-compliant Zoom. CONTACT: See the flyer for details and contact Angela Dahiya at vtautismcenter@vt.edu or call us at (540) 315-3273 if you are interested in joining the study or would like more information. Parental permission and informed consent is required for participation.
