Diagnostic Center North: (Part 1 of 2): Creating an Effective Behavior Intervention Plan: Writing a Plan with Appropriate Replacement Behaviors and Reinforcement Systems

PART 1 of 2: The implementation of a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) is only as effect as the precision, specificity, and creativity of the written plan. This training will cover how to accurately align individualized replacement behaviors to function, selecting an appropriate reinforcement system, and writing a measurable plan to track progress. Included in this training will be practical tools for writing BIPs that are user friendly to those implementing them while also providing enough detail that consistent implementation with fidelity is more likely.

Participants will:
  • Gain an increased understanding about necessary components of a Behavior Intervention Plan.
  • Learn how to create aligned pathways between function of behavior and functionally equivalent replacement behaviors.
  • Take away key concepts in writing a comprehensive BIP.
  • Engage in case discussion to identify appropriate, creative, and doable reinforcement systems .
  • A Certificate of Completion is available to participants. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities. The Diagnostic Center is also a California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board-approved continuing professional development provider.
