Challenging behaviors are often identified as one of the biggest difficulties for school staff. Disruptive student behavior is much more than just a frustration for teachers. It can greatly disrupt entire classes and even negatively impact school climate. However, functional behavior assessments are proven to work. They also help create the basis for a remediation tool called behavior intervention plans. BIPs recognize that disruptive behaviors have antecedents or triggers, and that they can be replaced with pro-social behaviors. Moreover, teaching pro-social behaviors and reinforcing it with positive behavior supports can dramatically improve school climate. This course gives you a thorough overview of the tools and processes involving BIPs.
