(FOX19) -

A new method has been developed for treating autism.

Doctor Linda Heitzman-Powell has treated hundreds of families affected by the disorder with the help of a web cam. 

Heitzman-Powell brings specialized treatments and new technologies right into the patient's home. 

Heitzman-Powell says this method has been particularly helpful to the kids because it provides them with structure and social skills.

Parents say it helps them because it provides easy access to service. 

"I think in our are there are actually more cows than people. It's really hard to get those services," said Audrey Litner, mother of Autistic boy.

Heitzman-Powell says she hopes to provide the program to Spanish speaking families in the near future.
