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
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.
