Abstract

Although videoconferencing has been used to deliver distance education, tutoring for children, and telemedicine observations, there is limited information on the efficacy of its use in delivering part C early intervention services. Four families receiving early intervention services in a rural program participated in a pilot study to test the feasibility of receiving intervention services over the Internet with a 2-way audio and video system. Satisfaction with this method of delivering services in a child's natural environment is reported from parents and early interventionists. Implications for early intervention programs are reported in savings in travel time and mileage costs.
