Military families face challenges when a dependent child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and local treatment expertise for children with an ASD is unavailable. eHealth models are considered promising delivery methods for assisting families who need information and support. The adaptation of existing face-to-face models of care for remote delivery may help support the provision of quality care (Hall & Bierman, 2015). To support the needs of military families of children with ASDs, the Remote Check-up (RCU), an adaptation of the Family Check-Up (FCU) model (Shaw, Dishion, Supplee, Gardner, & Arnds, 2006) provides a family-centered intervention for transitional care. This article describes the development of an eHealth delivery model and a menu of service options including online learning materials, care coordination services, and behavioral consultation for military families of children with ASD.
