Simulators offer the standardization of training for parents of children with disruptive behaviors in a controlled, safe environment, thus reducing the potential harm associated with inadvertently reinforcing problem behavior. Simulated scenarios in a virtual learning environment, combined with the action review cycle, allow parents to rehearse and receive feedback on implementing behavioral procedures. The study explored the impact of repeated virtual rehearsal sessions paired with the action review cycle on participants' implementation fidelity of functional analysis procedures, under attention and escape test conditions, in the TLE TeachLivE™ remote simulated environment. Virtual rehearsals combined with the action review cycle were introduced and withdrawn in a multiple baseline design across participants. Findings suggest the intervention increased participants' implementation fidelity; however, a functional relation could not be verified. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
