Covid-19 and social distancing have increased the importance of telehealth. The current study presented a new way to use telehealth for those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The present study was designed to teach conversational skills using Zoom-chat with change to children and adolescents who have ASD while they are in social skills therapy with peers. This study employed a multiple baseline design across participants. Post intervention, youths did not acquire conversational skills through the Zoom chat prompts, the participants did not successfully learn how to use the Zoom chat. Results are discussed in terms of the efficacy of Zoom-chat prompts as a promising way to improve conversational speech for children and adolescents with ASD.
