The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust school systems to provide educational services from a distance, including telehealth services.
This recorded webinar offers 1 CE credit for behavioral health professionals.
COVID-19 has necessitated that schools nationwide provide crucial academic and behavioral health services through telehealth. This rapid transition to a virtual academic setting has left academic and behavioral health workers with many questions about how to best support their students. This discussion will cover pertinent topics such as identifying challenges to implementing interventions in a virtual context, creating solutions for performing assessments through telehealth, and best practices for relating to stakeholders in a virtual environment. This panel will provide practical tools for those who work in academic environments to best support their students during this era of virtual learning.
- Identify challenges to implementing interventions in a digitized learning context.
- Name solutions for performing assessments via telehealth.
- Describe how to relate with stakeholders in a virtual environment.
From the time of registration, you have six months to access the coursework.
We are pleased to bring together experts in the field of telehealth in schools to help caregivers to better serve students.
