Designing and implementing a BIP in response to a student demonstrating “repeated inappropriate behaviour” is one of the requirements of Durack State School as outlined in the Responsible Behaviour Plan for Students (Education Queensland, n.d., p. 3). Following the referral to the Special Needs Team by Louise’s teacher, data collected through a FBA has been used to inform the creation of the BIP (see Appendix A) (Scott, Anderson & Alter, 2012). A BIP is a written document that describes what will be done to decrease problematic student behaviour and increase desired behaviour (SPE 3005, Module 4, 2016). A comprehensive BIP will include the desired replacement behaviour, anecdotal interventions, skill building interventions, consequences for …show more content…
Determining a behaviour goal based on the hypothesis of the function of Louise’s behaviour was the first step in creating the BIP (Scott & Nelson, 1999). The behaviour goal must include a desired replacement behaviour that will serve the same function for the student and be acceptable to the teacher (Scott et al., 2010). If it does not meet both of these requirements then it will not be successful (Scott et al., 2010). Based on the possible function of Louise’s challenging behaviour to escape doing Mathematics because she finds the task too difficult it was determined that an appropriate and achievable behaviour goal would be for Louise to place a Help card on her desk to indicate she needs assistance 50% of the time. To support Louise in achieving the behaviour goal she will be allowed to read a book of her choice quietly while waiting for assistance from the teacher. Reading was identified as something that Louise loves to do (see Child …show more content…
Skill building interventions are the behaviours that a student will need to learn to be able to achieve the identified behaviour goal (Scott et al., 2012). When outlining the skills that will be taught to the student it is important to include what will be taught, how it will be taught and who will teach it (Scott et al., 2012). Functional communication training is an intervention where the student is taught an acceptable communication response that serves the same function as the challenging behaviour (Scott et al., 2012). The school counsellor will explain and model to Louise how to use the Help card to request assistance and will explain to Louise that she can read a book of her choice while she waits for
