Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP)

A Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) defines how an educational setting will be changed to improve the behavioral success of the student. A Tier 3 BIP typically has multiple components, incorporating individualized strategies in the areas of:

  • Prevention of problem behaviors

  • Instruction in replacement behaviors

  • Systems of individualized positive reinforcement

  • Planned consequences designed to decrease reinforcement for problem behavior

  • Emergency interventions, if appropriate

  • Home/school collaboration

Developing a Competing Behavior Pathway diagram can help identify functional replacement behaviors. The Competing Behavior Pathway model is used to create a link between the functional behavior assessment and the behavior intervention plan.
