Although children from rural regions of the US have a higher incidence of behavioral and developmental disorders than children in cities and suburbs, there is less access to treatment and fewer adequately trained specialists. Learn about the convergence of research that provides insight into potential ways to mitigate disparities in early identification and treatment of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in rural areas. Explore with us three different parent-mediated early intervention modalities we offer to families via telehealth and how these interventions can improve child and parent outcomes as well as address challenges in providing services in rural areas to children with ASD and their parents.
