As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools across the country have moved education to a virtual format in an effort to support students at home during this unprecedented time. This rapid change to online education poses many potential problems for students, particularly for those with disabilities, mental health concerns, or have fewer resources available in the home. In response to the myriad of problems these students currently face, school psychologists can immediately help by supporting educators and caregivers with teleconsultation services to improve socially valid outcomes. This webinar will provide a conceptual framework for teleconsultation and review practical and ethical considerations for school psychologists who practice through this modality.
