Live Video Conferencing as a Viable Tool for Coaching Providers on the Use of Evidence-Based Practices

Presentation for the Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. This presentation will benefit state Part C staff who implement professional development activities to scale-up the use of evidence-based practices. Live video conferencing, sometimes referred to as telehealth, is sparking interest as an intervention delivery method, but it is also an effective method for supporting professional development. Two states engaged in these efforts shared their successes and challenges. A higher education faculty member shared research on the effectiveness of live video conferencing in early intervention. Presenters included Ardith Ferguson (NCSI), Colleen Batchelor (Child and Family Services, The Resource Exchange), Maureen Casey (AZ Early Intervention Program), Kristina Blaiser (Communication Sciences and Disorders, ISU-Meridian), and Cindy Weigel (IA Dept of Education).
