Telehealth program engages learners on the autism spectrum and their families

Like many young people, Ben was not crazy about the idea of learning how to do laundry. As a learner in Caldwell University’s Center for Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis, Ben is receiving virtual in-home instruction through the center’s new telehealth model developed to meet the needs of the learners during the pandemic.

While trying to come up with a way to make doing laundry fun for Ben, graduate student Carleana Hickey had a lightbulb moment: playing sound effects on Ben’s computer when he carries his laundry bucket.  “This made doing laundry so much more fun,” said Dr. Sharon Reeve, director of the center.  Hickey’s innovation is but one of many ideas that faculty members and graduate students are incorporating into their remote teaching for children, teens, and young adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Recently, another learner made a whale, using blocks similar to Legos, and wrote three sentences about her creation, dubbed “Whale-ita.” Throughout the afternoon, Whale-ita was invited by her creator to participate in the scheduled online activities. “We’ve had quite a few bellies laughs with our kiddos even though they are only with us virtually,” said Reeve.

Ben enjoys connecting remotely with his instructors in the Center for Autism and ABA. During the pandemic, the Center’s telehealth model is providing intervention and daily routines for the learners on the autism spectrum and their parents.

Whether at home or on campus, the center always has the same focus—to provide the goal-oriented, individualized, science-based approach to learning of applied behavior analysis. In New Jersey, the state with the greatest prevalence of ASD, the center’s nationally renowned faculty members is preparing graduate students to offer the most effective instruction at schools and nonprofits for those with the disorder.

Learners at the center range from ages five to 20. Instruction is developed through a team approach with faculty, graduate students, clinical supervisors, and parents working in close collaboration. During these days of remote teaching, the center provides four to six hours of instruction and sends activities home for the learners to do with their parents. Graduate students provide lessons on topics such as self-care, including handwashing and teeth brushing, doing chores, remaining productive each day, creating a daily schedule, and effective resolution of behavioral issues.

Theme weeks are being featured. During the first week of virtual instruction, the timely topic of healthcare/health care professions included virtual hospital tours and videos that illustrate the ways in which viruses can spread. To make the Earth Day theme more fun, a learner went on a scavenger hunt to find organic objects that could be recycled or composted.

During the COVID-19 stay at home order, doctoral student Shariq Khan and master’s student Devin Williams-Buttari provide remote instruction to learner Ben via the Center for Autism and ABA’s telehealth program.

Their first interactions via computer screens drew mixed emotions from the learners. That was to be expected since virtual learning was something new, explained Reeve. “Over time we showed all our learners that we could have fun at home while still learning about ‘awesome stuff,’” she said. A wonderful discovery has been that parents are instrumental in making all this happen. “With our help, they are teaching their children,” said Reeve.

Various models are used; parents work with the graduate students and they present to faculty, or parents record videos of home activities so faculty members can assess the learners’ skill levels and provide recommendations. “The videos are such very fun to watch! We have never been closer to all the families because we now spend so much time remotely in their homes,” said Reeve. This has been a beneficial learning experience for graduate students, who are developing strategies to help parents interact effectively with their children. It has also given them the opportunity to work with parents who typically do not have the time to train due to work obligations or the distance of their homes from the center in Caldwell. “Parents seem very appreciative of the training we are providing to help them through an average day,” said Reeve. As a result of this new way of learning, the center’s faculty members are evaluating a virtual post-pandemic instruction model.

Reeve and the other faculty members in the Department of Applied Behavior Analysis are proud of the graduate students who have stepped up to help them develop the telehealth model. They are “one big family in the center” and are doing all they can to ensure that the learners and their parents are getting all of the support and resources they need, said Reeve. “We are proud to still be making a difference in their lives—just in a somewhat different format.”

Nursing stories from the front lines of the COVID-19 response

 Marchelle Boyd ’15 – ‘We Need to Get More Nurses to Come Out Here’
Headshot of Marchelle Boyd in her NNUsring Uniform

Marchelle Boyd’15 is a primary nurse in a hospital working with COVID-19 patients. She is a graduate student in Caldwell’s Master of Science in Nursing in Population Health program.

Working in a hospital COVID-19 unit, Marchelle Boyd’15 is more convinced than ever that she wants to teach the next generation of nurses.  “We need to get more nurses to come out here –out into the fight,” said Boyd, a primary nurse at a small community regional hospital and a graduate student in Caldwell’s Master of Science in Nursing in Population Health program. “It is a war zone,” she said of the battle she and her colleagues take up each day to do their best for coronavirus patients and their families. The virus has limited how often she can go into patients’ rooms. Much of the leg work is done on the phone with patients and their family members. The hallways are quieter and everyone – whether a patient or a healthcare worker-is masked.   Even in the last moments of life, some patients are alone. This is the raw, eye-opening reality of administering health care through this pandemic. Yet, in the midst of the fragility, Boyd sees an outpouring of support. Leadership is making the rounds more. “It feels good to feel supported and appreciated and checked on more,” she said.  Employees are there for each other.  “We are leaning on each other more—we are more supportive to fellow colleagues,” said Boyd, an alumna of Caldwell’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.

Picture of Marchelle Boyd, graduate student in Caldwell’s Master of Science in Nursing in Population Health program.

Even though volunteers cannot come into the hospital, they are standing with the health care professionals in other ways.  “I stopped having to bring my lunch,” said Boyd, because of all of the outside merchants who are donating food to the hospital. A high school student who normally volunteers at the hospital raised $2,000 for the health care workers, and someone else donated Crocs for nursing shoes.

Through the intensity of challenges, Boyd relies on the support of friends, family, and colleagues from the Middlesex Regional Black Nurses Association, of which she is chapter president.  The professional nursing organization is a part of the National Black Nurses Association.

As a current graduate nursing student, Boyd is eager to share what she has seen on the front lines with future nursing students. “This outbreak is shining a light on the nursing shortage and probably upcoming nursing shortage due to this pandemic,” says Boyd citing a study from the World Health Organization stating that there is a global shortfall of 5.9 million nurses and another study from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing showing that master’s and doctoral programs in nursing are not producing enough nurse educators to meet demand.  “I hope to close the gap from the lack of higher nursing educators. I want to educate and teach the next generation of nursing professionals.”


Peter Toscak:  Serving in the hospital emergency room through COVID-19
Picture of Peter Toscak ‘21, an undergraduate student in the BSN program, is an emergency room clinical technician working during the pandemic

Peter Toscak ‘21, an undergraduate student in the BSN program, is an emergency room clinical technician working during the pandemic.

Peter Toscak’s ’21 work in a hospital emergency room these days involves quite a bit of passing instruments to doctors and nurses and doing a lot of cleaning—making sure everyone is safe. As an emergency room clinical technician prior to COVID19, Toscak would assist with rapid treatments, draw blood, give flu tests and administer points of care testing like urine tests and blood sugars. Now, with the pandemic underway, his work has transitioned to making sure the nurses and doctors can facilitate proper care which translates to getting everything set in place for them.  It is a “scary time”, says Toscak, a nursing student in Caldwell’s undergraduate nursing program. But it also a time where he is learning from the nurses and doctors who he watches every day. “It is a team effort…everything that took minutes, takes hours” and in particular that means the cleaning.

It is hard to see the reality of this virus. Toscak wears full personal protective equipment that he brings home to clean with specific instructions including how to use bleach.

He began working in the emergency room in 2017 and discovered right away that he wanted to pursue nursing studies. “I saw the true impact nurses were having on patients day-to-day.” Upon graduation, he wants to continue working in an emergency room, then move on to an intensive care unit and then military nursing perhaps in a flight mobile intensive nursing unit.

With Caldwell University classes now being taught remotely. Toscak appreciates how the nursing professors transitioned so quickly and that they are willing “to change up things so everyone learns at their best.”   He sees clearly how the coronavirus will make future nurses face their careers with even more fortitude and professionalism.  “Nursing students need to be extremely diligent and prepared to enter the workforce.”


Danielle Schiavone’19 – Grateful for the mentoring from senior nursing staff during COVID-19

 Danielle Schiavone ’19 was thrilled to obtain her dream job of working with children in a pediatric intensive care unit right out of the nursing program at Caldwell University.

Danielle Schiavone ’19 is a nurse working in the hospital responding to COVID-19 patients.

She cares for kids with different illnesses, the most common of which were respiratory viruses, neurologic conditions, trauma, and cancer. “Some are very sick, on ventilators and receiving life-saving medications, and others are on the mend but not well enough yet to go to an acute care unit,” explained Schiavone. To her, it has been an honor to meet the brave children and their parents. “Kids are resilient and their caregivers are courageous.”

Her days are different now; instead of working exclusively with a population of sick children and young people up to the age of 21, she is seeing adults who have COVID-19.  As tough as it is, she is grateful to have the mentoring and support of senior nursing staff at the large research and teaching hospital.  They are constantly checking in with her — “taking time to explain it all to me and making sure I feel comfortable,” said Schiavone.    In her Caldwell nursing classes she was warned of some senior nurses who can push Picture of Danielle Schiavone during her graduation ceremonyaround the less experienced.  “It could not be farther from that—we are all very close,” said Schiavone of her current experiences.   She is appreciative of her more experienced colleagues as she learns from them and they work together in administering critical nursing health care in these trying times.   She is also thankful that they are wearing hospital-supplied scrubs. “We can return them at the end of our shift and do not have to wear the same uniform home that we wore to care for COVID patients.”

Remote Learning at Caldwell in Full Swing

Remote learning is in full swing as faculty members and students connect across multiple platforms including Google Hangouts Meet, Zoom, Blackboard and more.

To prepare for engaging remotely, the Offices of Academic Affairs, Information Technology, and Online Education held several comprehensive workshops for faculty and staff. Professors volunteered to help their colleagues learn the ins and outs of teaching via the digital world.

Students from around the globe who returned to their home countries are connecting with their Caldwell community. Antonia Kirdyashkin of Australia appreciates that her professors have been accommodating her with the “bit tricky” time change. “They are working to help me and work this out and it’s been going well so far!”

Heather Cook, MLIS, Director of the Jennings Library, along with library staff and Academic Affairs collected and organized devices from across the campus so the Information Technology Office could update the computers for students and faculty for remote learning.

Heather Cook, MLIS, Director of the Jennings Library, along with library staff and Academic Affairs collected and organized devices from across the campus so the Information Technology Office could update the computers for students and faculty for remote learning.

The Jennings Library staff in conjunction with Academic Affairs collected devices from across the campus and IT updated the computers for students. The library staff organized and created a check out plan.  Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Barbara Chesler reached out to the faculty to ask them to contact students to see who might need a device. History Professor Marie Mullaney and Associate Dean of Business and Computer Science Virginia Rich, among other faculty, made sure their students had what they needed for their studies. “I think these young students, especially first-year students, are growing up fast,” said Mullaney. “We at Caldwell care so much about our students…we had to be tenacious.” She “bombarded” her 77 students with emails until they replied that they did or did not need help. “This is a great pedagogical experiment,” said Mullaney.

Rich said it was a terrific collaborative effort across academic departments to loan their computer lab equipment, including Chromebooks and regular laptops, to students who have been accustomed to working in the computer labs and to faculty who use office computers. “My colleagues in the library and our student workers devised an efficient system to safely hand over clean computers. Everyone kept their hands clean and maintained appropriate social distance. It worked well.”

Nursing Students See Practical Application in Managing COVID-19

Graduate nursing student Rachel Capote has been watching the White House press conferences on COVID-19 and hearing the speakers use terms and data analysis concepts that she has been learning about in her Advanced Pathophysiology class for the Master of Science in Nursing in Population Health. “It is fascinating.  This area of study interests me because nurses are afforded the opportunity to work with a team of experts to affect change across populations to improve health outcomes,” said Capote, an experienced pediatric nurse and lab assistant for the undergraduate nursing program.

Capote had just finished her paper on “Novel Coronavirus COVID-19” when the outbreak started to peak.

We asked Capote, a graduate of  Caldwell’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, and Dr. Donna Naturale, Capote’s professor and the associate dean of the School of Nursing and Public Health, what the coronavirus is teaching us about health care and nursing and how Caldwell’s MSN in population health is preparing nurses to meet this type of health care crisis.

How is the Master of Science in Nursing in Population Health program relevant to what we are seeing in the coronavirus outbreak? 

Picture of Dr. Donna Naturale, Associate Dean of the School of Nursing and Public Health.

Dr. Donna Naturale is an Associate Dean of the School of Nursing and Public Health.

Dr. Naturale– Caldwell’s MSN in Population Health is directly related to improving the health of vulnerable populations.  Today, more than ever, our nation is undergoing a public health crisis.  We will need more nurses who are prepared to understand, care for and evaluate populations at risk for complications of the disease.  The MSN in Population Health curriculum focuses on epidemiology, assessing disease and identifying trends in data.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is providing us with epidemiological data daily with this pandemic.

What role is technology playing in health care for this pandemic?

Dr. Naturale Technology is helping to keep people connected.  Telemedicine is being implemented in medical practices and healthcare facilities to increase patient engagement and improve the patient experience while reducing the risk of the spread of disease.  The use of electronic medical records in healthcare will help to improve communications among healthcare providers, patient safety and sharing of information such as electronic prescribing.  These types of tools will reduce the need for patients to be seen in the office.  By using advanced technology such as telehealth services, health coaching and various types of digital advanced technology like home blood sugar monitoring and home blood pressure monitoring, access to healthcare will become easier.  Utilizing technology, the nurses graduating with a MSN in Population Health will be prepared to lead interdisciplinary teams and coordinate patient care in order to promote best patient outcomes.

Ms. Capote – As devastating as the pandemic of COVID-19 is, there is much to be learned.  Technology has vastly improved the speed and opportunity for which scientists can collaborate to share information.  The experience will help us to become stronger as a nation and improve and strengthen relationships with our global neighbors.  Emergency preparedness plans will be improved to help us be better prepared in the future.

Ms. Capote, you said you started practicing social distancing earlier this year while you were working on your paper? I’m in New York several times a week and I stopped going to theatres and museums before they called it social distancing. It made sense.

 As devastating as this COVID-19 outbreak is, what do you both think are the takeaways that will benefit healthcare and society?

Dr. Naturale –Having been a nurse for over 30 years I have had the opportunity to run through many disaster drills.  Unfortunately, none of them prepared us for this type of virus that spreads so readily.  As we have already learned, our nation was not fully prepared for the pandemic of COVID-19.  We recognize the need for more personal protective equipment for healthcare staff. We were happy that we could donate equipment from our nursing school to Morristown Medical Center. Society has learned the importance of meticulous hand hygiene in order to prevent the spread of the infection.    Each day we continue to learn that this virus spreads very easily and can live on objects for an extended period of time placing the community at risk.   We are learning the importance of infection prevention and infection control measures.  Social distancing–remaining six feet away from others–is being practiced. It is new and takes some adjustment.   This all requires support and communication with others in a different manner than what we are used to.   Telemedicine will become a more commonly used tool for healthcare.

 Ms. Capote, what have you seen as the benefits of the MSN in Population Health program? The online program has been an incredible opportunity for me to advance my education while maintaining full-time employment.  It’s affordable and relevant to today’s health care crisis.  In the courses, faculty members use the newest technology and provide full academic support and guidance.  I plan to graduate in 2021 using my new degree in an advanced role of population health nursing within a major New York City hospital system.

Nursing Professor Jennifer Rhodes spearheaded a collection of personal protective equipment from Caldwell University’s School of Nursing and Public Health for Morristown Medical Center

When Nursing faculty member Jennifer Rhodes, DNP heard that The American Association of Colleges of Nursing was calling on member schools to donate the much-needed equipment to their community healthcare facilities, she jumped into gear. She spearheaded a collection from the university for Morristown since Caldwell partners with the Center for its nursing students’ clinical work and several alumni work there. The university donated masks, gloves, isolation gowns, Clorox wipes, Purell hand sanitizer, germicidal wipes, sterile dressing kits, and goggles. “As a former emergency room nurse, I cannot imagine what they are experiencing on the front lines right now.” Rhodes has been thinking of her colleagues and nurses who have graduated from Caldwell University who are working in response to COVID-19. “The least I could do was find a way to help.” She is continuing to secure donations from her friends and colleagues who want to help.

Donna Naturale, DNP, associate dean in the School of Nursing and Public Picture of Protective equipment donated by Caldwell University School of NursingHealth, says they are proud of all those who are dedicating their skills to the crisis including Rhodes, and Roxanne Sabatini, an adjunct in the Master in Science in Nursing in Population Health program. Sabatini is a nurse educator who was unable to teach this spring due to her work with COVID-19 response at the hospital. “We need nurses and public health educators more than ever at this challenging time,” said Naturale.

Discovering gratitude, joy and a beautiful culture on Belize mission trip

 Caldwell, N.J., Jan. 28, 2020 – Karine Duarte loves it when people ask her about the brown ring she wears from her mission trip to Belize. “I want people to ask about it, to become aware,” she says, of the culture of the Mayan people, how they live with very few material resources and how they have a peace of mind and joy not readily experienced in first world countries.

Duarte, a junior, and nine other Caldwell University students and two chaperones spent Jan. 5-13 in the village of San Marcos repainting a school and murals, playing with the children and learning about the community. Ambar Coto, a sophomore, was with Duarte when they visited a family in the village that had lost two children. Once the students learned that one of the murals they were repainting was dedicated to those children, the project meant so much more. It was like the family was saying, “This means something to us. Can you bring it back to life?” said Coto, of Woodbridge, New Jersey.

The Caldwell group enjoyed playing soccer with the children. Duarte, a nursing student who played soccer in high school in Newark, was excited when she received letters from the children; “… the two boys I played soccer with wrote to me specifically, considering we share [the] commonality with the sport, and it was quite emotional to have them show their gratitude by writing us letters.”

The trip was “therapeutic,” said Duarte, who was happy to be away from technology and was rarely on her phone.

The Caldwell group stayed in Punta Gorda at the Saint Peter Claver parish guesthouse, and members gathered every night to reflect on the day’s happenings. It was a chance to “grapple with the challenges of poverty in our world and how we are called to help and serve the common good,” said Colleen O’Brien, the director of Campus Ministry for Caldwell and the main chaperone. They also bonded. “As soon we got off the plane, everyone wanted to listen to each other,” said Coto, a nursing student.

A highlight came at the end of the workweek when the group met with the people of San Marcos for a meal prepared by the village women. It consisted of a traditional Mayan dish, caldo and corn tortillas; there was traditional Mayan music and dancing. “We were honored to be welcomed into this community like family,” said O’Brien.

During the mission trip members of the group had a chance to experience “the culture and gifts that Belize has to offer,” said O’Brien. They visited a Mayan ruin site,  swam in caves and drank coconut water straight from the source.

Since coming home, Coto and Duarte feel more gratitude in their daily lives. “I haven’t stopped smiling,” said Coto. She said family members expected to hear “vacation stories” but instead they heard about a very different experience, which has inspired them to reach out and do more. Coto’s older sisters, who have children, have given her books to send to Belize. The Caldwell group also plans to send clothes, said Duarte.

The experience made the nursing students realize there is a whole world out there where they might provide their skills as traveling nurses someday. They want others to venture out too. “Everyone has to do it,” whether through their school,  church or another group, said Coto. “Go somewhere else, disconnect and just do it.”
