Telepractice coaching may be a viable alternative technology tool to deliver services to parents of children with autism spectrum disorder. Using a multiple probe design across participants, we examined the effectiveness of telepractice parent coaching in a communication intervention on parents? implementation of strategies to improve their children?s communication skills. Project coaches instructed parents on strategies to teach communication skills to their child, including incentivizing communication, modeling, prompting, progressive time delay, and expanding. Results indicated a functional relation between the telepractice parent coaching intervention and parent use of strategies. Effect sizes for each participant are compatible with visual analysis results that show a very low effect to very strong effect depending on the intervention component examined.
