Individuals with disabilities may exhibit dangerous behavior such as physical aggression and self-injury. Determining the environmental variables maintaining dangerous behavior using a functional behavior assessment can inform treatment in teaching individuals with disabilities functionally equivalent replacement behavior. However, logistic factors, such as distance and the scarcity of qualified personnel, often impede the administration of functional behavior assessments. Behavioral skills training delivered via telehealth may teach practitioners (e.g., behavior analysts) to conduct functional behavior assessments. The current systematic review identified peer-reviewed articles and dissertations (n = 8) involving telehealth-delivered behavioral skills training intended to increase the intervention fidelity of practitioners in conducting functional behavior assessments. Coders reviewed study characteristics, quality, and training outcomes. Authors reported mixed findings regarding the ability of training to improve trainee fidelity. A discussion follows a presentation of results.
