Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
The final assignment is a 4- to 6-page behavior intervention plan (BIP) that incorporates the information gathered in the Unit 6 Assignment and uses the functional behavior assessment (FBA).
The pressure is on! You have been busy the last few weeks with direct observations of Axel at his home and community settings. You have operationally defined his target behaviors and chosen one to address with a behavior intervention plan (BIP). It is time to get creative!
Utilize the Unit 9 Assignment Template to write a behavior intervention plan for Axel addressing the target behavior you chose for the Unit 6 Assignment. You will include the following in the plan:
Name and date of birth of client.
Parents’ names and contact information referral Information.
Referral information (why did the family call for help?) and summary of indirect assessment.
Briefly summarize the information you learned through interviews, records reviews, and questionnaires.
Briefly summarize your direct observation data. Include the type of data collection forms that were utilized: A-B-C data; frequency; interval, duration, and latency.
After you completed A-B-C data, you completed a functional analysis. Review the graph below to confirm the probable/hypothesized function of the target behavior. Describe your findings.
Design a function-based behavior intervention plan:
Antecedent modifications: motivating operations/establishing operations; setting events, if appropriate.
Identify the research design you will be using and discuss your reasons for choosing the design (A-B design, reversal design, alternating treatments design, multiple baseline design, and changing criterion design).
Alternative/replacement behavior: How will you teach and reinforce this?
Identify your reinforcement (positive; negative; non-contingent). Did you conduct a preference assessment?
Schedule of reinforcement (continuous or intermittent). Discuss the reasons for your choices.
Criteria for reinforcement.
Differential reinforcement (DR) and extinction (if part of your BIP).
If using DR and extinction, for what effect(s) must you be prepared?
How will you approach training (naturalistic training; discrete trial; contrived settings/events, etc.)?
Will you use a prompt hierarchy? Briefly discuss.
Include generalization and maintenance approaches in your BIP.
Discuss how you will train others in the implementation of the BIP using a behavioral skills training (BST) approach. Include a discussion on each of the steps used in BST. Include who will you train and how you will ensure that the plan will be implemented correctly.
Data collection (for home, school, OT, and ABA therapy sessions). Continuous or interval data collection? What measurement system will you be using? Create a data sheet for collecting intervention data and add to the appendix of your behavior intervention plan.
Criteria for mastery and discharge that is related to your measurement system.
How often will you be working one-on-one with Axel? How will you address the target behavior during therapy? What supplies/activities will you need?
Prepare a line graph that includes both your baseline data from Unit 6 assignment and intervention data. Analyze the graph and include a summary of the effectiveness of the intervention.
Sign and date your behavior intervention plan (BIP).
Successful papers will incorporate information from your readings with ideas of how those concepts can be applied to your individualized behavior intervention plan. Put your assignment in a Word document. Your assignment should be double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, and in APA format. Please use your textbooks and journal articles you have read in your program as your main sources for this paper. Contact the Writing Center for help with APA formatting. All information written in the behavior intervention plan must be in your original words. Paraphrased and quoted material must be cited in the body of your paper and listed on your reference page.
