Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Engagement [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for the duration of treatment, an expected average of 10 weeks ]
    Engagement includes multiple dimensions of participation in the treatment process, including items assessing attendance at weekly sessions, participation in mid-week calls, and home practice of skills.

  1. Change in Disruptive Behavior from the start of treatment through 6 months after treatment ends [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed through the duration of treatment and 6 additional months after treatment ends, an expected average of 9 months ]
    Disruptive behavior includes multiple dimensions of behavior, including items assessing noncompliance, aggression, and oppositionality.

  2. Treatment Cost [ Time Frame: Treatment costs will be tracked through the duration of treatment, an expected average of 10 weeks ]
    Cost is a multidimensional measure that includes items assessing both start-up (e.g., technology development) and implementation (e.g., therapist time) costs.
