  • Implementation of telehealth and distant care services in pediatric practice
  • Implementation of telehealth and teleconsultation for behavioral/mental health services
  • Use of telehealth to support adolescent health promotion
  • Use of telehealth for children and youth with special health care needs, including those with autism spectrum disorder, other developmental disabilities, and medical complexities
  • Use of telehealth in pediatric practices serving rural and underserved communities

Technical assistance services can include connection to tools and resources and subject matter experts. Email distantcare@aap.org for technical assistance requests. Please note, the AAP does not endorse or support the use of any specific telehealth technology and does not provide technical assistance on the use of any one specific telehealth technology.
