  • Once the function of the behaviors have been clearly identified through the FBA, a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP) may be recommended. The BIP is an intervention plan created to reduce and ultimately replace the target behavior based on what that behavior serves.  The plan must be specific and clearly stated, including the persons responsible for implementing interventions, rewards, or measurement of the intervention. The interventions will focus on teaching the student new skills and more acceptable behavior.  Changes in the environment, delivery of school based support, intrinsic or extrinsic reinforcements, or management interventions are generally a part of the plan.  A Functional Behavioral Assessment and the Behavior Intervention Plan can be used for both general education and special education students.
