Abstract—Intervention services positively impact outcomes of
children with special needs and their families. However, families
face many burdens when accessing high-quality intervention
services such as availability of providers, time, and cost; these
burdens are often magnified for underserved families. As such,
there is a high need to determine if providing services via
telehealth is acceptable to reaching these families. To fill this gap
in the field, we developed “Early Discovery” an telehealth
prevention education program tailored specifically for high risk
preschool age children. This framework aided in identifying
successful intervention components that can be widely
disseminated with the ultimate goal of serving families that can
be aided via telehealth.
Index Terms—Telehealth, preschool children, intervention.
