Would You Use A Pay-per-use Service That Would Provide Behavioral Consultations Online?

Would You Use A Pay-per-use Service That Would Provide Behavioral Consultations Online?

I Have wanted to own my own autism/developmental/language center forever. But having a hard time taking the leap...Then reading through some posts and I now wondering if there is an interest in a business that would review description and/or video of behavior/situations and offer some behavioral analysis and suggestions on programing/curbing behaviors?

I am not talking about evaluations or long term services. It would be more of a indivudal problem solving option. I agree that the best option is to have a high quality behavioral specialist working directly with your child, but that isn't available to every one nor is it needed for all behaviors (or the specialist rightly focus on the most interferring behaviors, and not on the ones that just make others crazy).

You would also need to consider the legal aspects of something like that because under the law that would be considered a medical service this you would open yourself up to litigation.

I am sure I am not the only one to think this but if I was going to have my child evaluated I would want it done by a professional . You may think well what is the difference of what is being done here but the difference is that everyone knows everyone else is just a parent in the same position they are and do not expect and are not looking for medical treatment

Not sure whether I would pay for it. I can get a lot of free "general" advise online or get varying perspective on behaviors, but if I am looking for pay for behavioural consultant, I would want him/her to observe my child in person and understand my child more in depth. I realize that the advise may very well be the same.

I would ask some professionals if they would feel comfortable working and giving consultations without meeting the client in person. If it would be within bounds of their accepted professional ethics and you can find some people who are tech savvy and willing to work online then I think it could be a great idea!
