A behavior intervention plan (BIP) provides direction to others when facing challenging behavior. BIPs must be concise and comprehensive, written in language that the interventionist understands. New behavior analysts find it difficult to write effective BIPs efficiently yet they are the foundation for successful programming.

This course takes you step-by-step through the process and provides a wealth of resources the help you become an efficient writer. This course is a must for new BCBAs or students preparing for their first position in the role. Take the guesswork out of writing your plan.

If you want even more support, watch the video below to learn more about the BCBA Personal Assistant! A study conducted by Tarbox, et al. (2013) found that professionals who used a web-based tool for creating behavior intervention plans produced a significantly higher rate of including function-based interventions. The BCBA Personal Assistant is your guide for efficiently creating effective behavior plans!

This course covers:

  • Parts of a BIP
  • Common Antecedent, Skill Development and Consequence Interventions
  • Writing a Statement of Hypothesized Function
  • BIP Structure and Formatting
  • Increasing Efficiency in Your Writing

This course does not provide CEUs, but does offer valuable information to guide professionals in creating a well-written BIP.
