Early intervention services are critical for supporting young children, however, families face many barriers accessing high-quality services. Telehealth can help increase family access to services. Early Discovery, an early intervention program funded by the Children�s Trust, uses telehealth to increase accessibility to services for multiply stressed families. This presentation will discuss the successes and challenges experienced introducing telehealth and describe the course of research we embarked on as a result.
