Positive Behavior Intervention Plan (PBIP)


Once we understand what purpose the behavior serves for the child, we can: 1) work to change aspects of the situation that give rise to the behavior, 2) teach and promote more appropriate ways of meeting the same needs through the development of alternative behaviors, and 3) modify the responses of other people to the behaviors so that problem behaviors do not result in "payoffs" for the child.


The Positive Behavior Intervention Plan is a specific plan of action that focuses on understanding why behaviors occur and implementing strategies to teach students more appropriate behaviors. In order to develop a more effective and efficient behavior intervention plan, we must use the information from the FBA that describes when, where, and why problem behavior occurs. 


Overall, positive interventions that focus on changing student behavior involve:

1) Making adjustments in the environment to prevent problem behavior,

2) Teaching the behaviors that are expected,

3) Modeling those behaviors,

4) Consistently recognizing and rewarding the behaviors when they occur, and

5) Consistently enforcing meaningful consequences for behavior intervention.



Once the plan is implemented, data is collected to monitor progress and determine if the interventions are effective in reducing inappropriate behavior and increasing more appropriate behaviors. Reports of progress are documented and distributed at the middle and end of each 9-week academic period.


The PBIP Progress Note looks at daily data for the problem behavior and the targeted appropriate behavior during that review period. The team determines if progress is made and if any revisions should be made to the plan.
