About Telehealth ROCKS

Telehealth ROCKS

Connecting the children and families of Southeast Kansas with developmental and behavioral specialists through telemedicine.


Telehealth ROCKS is a HRSA grant-funded project designed to expand successful telemedicine approaches to the children and families of Southeast Kansas.  

Telehealth ROCKS is dedicated to improving the assessment and treatment of children with developmental and behavioral concerns using telemedicine. Over the last decade, the University of Kansas Medical Center's multi-specialty team has worked hand-in-hand with health care providers and school-based sites to develop an integrated telehealth approach. Driven by community-identified needs, this model focuses on developmental and autism assessment over televideo as well as behavioral assessment and treatment over televideo.
