BIP Step 4

Reinforcement strategies for replacement and desired behavior


  • Strategies to reinforce use of replacement behavior(s) should result in the same outcome/function as the problem behavior


  • Describe reinforcement strategies in enough detail so that a stranger would be able to implement the intervention with the student and/or multiple people would implement the strategy in the same way. The detail should include, at a minimum, when the intervention is delivered and how the intervention is delivered.

  • Describe any additional reinforcement strategies to increase desirable behaviors (e.g., differential reinforcement)



For a student with an IEP, the ARC should:

  • Consider whether staff training is needed to implement reinforcement strategies and address this in the IEP (Program Modifications and Supports for School Personnel)


  • Address reinforcement strategies in IEP (Supplementary Aids and Services).
