Diurnal bruxism among individuals with intellectual disabilities is often measured on the basis of its auditory products, thereby precluding the contingent presentation of stimuli during silent bruxism events. Electromyography (EMG) offers a technological solution to the identification of all bruxism events. EMG has not been previously evaluated in nonvocal clients with intellectual disabilities in the context of functional analysis and treatment. In the current series of analyses, we suggest a set of methods to implement EMG technology with this population. In Analysis 1, we propose a strategy for systematically identifying bruxism events. In Analysis 2 we evaluate an EMG staff-training package with naïve interventionists without past experience with EMG technology. Finally, Analysis 3 presents a practical example of this method during the functional analysis and treatment of a client with frequent diurnal bruxism
