EPSY 3361/6361 Behavior Project

PART TWO:

Designing a Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP).

Instructions: Create Two BIPs to target two different types of target behaviors. 

Your Two BIPS should address the following two situations:

Situation One- A male student is exhibiting some task avoidance behavior in the classroom not wanting to complete his work and finding ways throughout the day to not complete his work.

Situation Two- A female student is constantly exhibiting different behaviors in the classroom to get others to laugh at her and pay attention to her.

**Your BIPs should address the behaviors in each of the above situations.  You should complete two separate BIPs that could be used in the school settingócomplete all sections on the BIP Template.  The situations are broad in order to give you the freedom to create a BIP from a student that you may be familiar with or allows you to have freedom to think about a student that you may be working with in the future.

On the following two pages is a Behavioral Intervention Template that can be used to create the two BIPs you are required to complete.
