DISCIPLINARY ISSUES AND BEHAVIOR PLANS  

Disciplinary Issues

Sometimes students with disabilities act out in a variety of ways and for a variety of reasons. These behaviors often impact their own ability to learn as well as those around them.


Some of most common are: disciplinary issues are


● Disrespect - students speak and act in a disrespectful way to adults and peers

● Defiance - students openly refuse to listen to adults or follow directions

● Bullying - students consistently intimidate others, often to make themselves feel better

● Aggression - students become physically or verbally violent


When inappropriate behaviors negatively impact a child’s education, a behavior plan may be the best option to address the issues.


Behavior Plans, what are they?

A behavior intervention plan (or BIP) is a formal, written plan that teaches and reinforces appropriate behavior. The purpose is to prevent or stop misbehavior.

A BIP has three key components.

The plan:

● Lists the problem behavior

● Describes why it’s happening

● Puts in place strategies or supports to help


An effective BIP usually includes skills training to increase appropriate behavior, changes in the school environment to reduce the negative behaviors, strategies to replace the problem behaviors with positive behaviors, and supports for the child to utilize appropriate behaviors.


If your child has a history of suspensions, disciplinary violations, or has been recommended for expulsion, a behavior plan may be necessary. Should you feel that your child needs a BIP or their current BIP in not appropriately addressing negative behaviors, our team of experts can assist in addressing your concerns.
