Bridging the Behavior Intervention Plan From School To Home
Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs) are common place for students who display challenging behavior that impacts learning. The effectiveness of the plan in the educational setting is a testament to how hard the evaluators worked but what if the home environment isn’t seeing the same benefits? What happens when the best laid plans don’t translate to a different environment?
Presenter: Lacy M. Knutson, M.S., BCBA, Training Associate/Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Center for Disabilities
