About The Study: In this randomized clinical trial that included 150 children with developmental delay, internet-delivered parent-child interaction therapy led to improvements in child behavior that were maintained across follow-up visits. These findings show the promise of telehealth formats for expanding the reach and scope of care for underserved children with developmental delay and their families.
