News / OACB, BHN Alliance, and DD Council team up on videos showing value of technology in EI
OACB, the Ohio DD Council, and the Belmont, Harrison, Noble Alliance have collaborated to produce a series of eight online videos showing technology's applications for early intervention practitioners in Ohio. These videos show how video and remote conferencing technology can increase efficiency of and access to early intervention services in rural counties.
OACB's team of children and family consultants helped obtain much of the technology shown in the videos and train practitioners on its use. OACB team members were also instrumental in the videos' production.
