Telehealth is different than distance supervision in that it enables a practitioner to treat someone in a remote location.  With distance supervision, the direct service provider (such as an RBT) is still in the same room with the client.

Telehealth is an option for some services based in ABA.  Here is a Telehealth resource:

The Mid-Atlantic Telehealth Resource Center (MATRC) is one of the 12 regional Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) part of the National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers (NCTRC).  The NCTRC seeks to advance the utilization of telehealth in healthcare, particularly across rural communities, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and Community Health Clinics (CHCs).  The Consortium is a collaboration between 12 regional Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) and 2 national centers. The TRCs specialize in training, education, research, clinical applications and consultation services that are bolstered by staff expertise and knowledge. Funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT), the TRCs provide unbiased, nonpartisan and expert telehealth technical assistance.  The MATRC provides technical assistance to individuals who live and work in Delaware, District of Columbia, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey (Central and South), North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
