What's the Function? Using The Skills® BIP Builder

Target Audience:Orange County Teachers (preK-12) ESE, Teachers (preK-12) General Ed,  Behavior Specialists, MTSS coaches


Course Objective:  Do you wonder why your student continues to act out in the classroom? Do you wish there was a tool to help you identify and understand the function of the behavior, that was research based and easy to use? There is! Come learn how to use the web-based  tool, “The Skills® BIP Builder”, to identify the FUNCTION of the behavior of one or more student(s) with challenging behaviors in the classroom which can be used to create a functional behavior assessment/plan and identify possible positive interventions. The Skills® BIPBuilder program  is based on scientifically-proven and least-intrusive procedures and makes plans more function based, evidence based, and effective. This tool, as presented in this half day course, DOES NOT create a Behavior Intervention Plan. Please always consult your Behavior Team/Specialist for the process and information needed in your district to create a Behavior Intervention Plan.

* Participants will be given a free one year web-based subscription.*


Course Description: Participants will learn and understand:

  • Why identifying the function of a student’s behavior is crucial to increasing student success.

  • What are the 4 main functions of behavior?

  • How to use “The Skills® BIP Builder to identify the function of each specific unwanted behavior for your targeted student(s).
