Daily Progress Report


Why does bep work l.jpg

Why does BEP work?

  • Improved structure

    • Prompts are provided throughout the day for correct behavior.

    • System for linking student with at least one positive adult.

    • Student chooses to participate.

  • Student is “set up for success”

    • First contact each morning is positive.

    • “Blow-out” days are pre-empted.

    • First contact each class period (or activity period) is positive, and sets up successful behavioral momentum.


Why does bep work92 l.jpg

Why does BEP work?

  • Increase in contingent feedback

    • Feedback occurs more often.

    • Feedback is tied to student behavior.

    • Inappropriate behavior is less likely to be ignored or rewarded.

  • Program can be applied in all school locations

    • Classroom, playground, cafeteria (anywhere there is a supervisor)


Why does bep work93 l.jpg

Why does BEP Work?

  • Elevated reward for appropriate behavior

    • Adult and peer attention delivered each target period

    • Adult attention (and tangible) delivered at end of day

  • Linking behavior support and academic support

    • For academic-based, escape-maintained problem behavior incorporate academic support

  • Linking school and home support

    • Provide format for positive student/parent contact

  • Program is organized to morph into a self-management system

    • Increased options for making choices

    • Increased ability to self-monitor performance/progress


Logistics for setting up a bep program l.jpg

Logistics for Setting up a BEP program

  • Faculty and staff commitment

    • Is problem behavior a major concern?

    • Are staff willing to commit 5 min per day?

    • Is BEP a reasonable option for us?

      • More than 5 students need extra support

      • BEP is designed to work with 10-12% of kids in a school

      • BEP typically “works” with 67% of students.

      • BEP does NOT replace need for individualized supports.

  • Team available

    • Team leader

    • BEP coordinator (morning, afternoon)

    • Team (meets at least once every two weeks)


  • Logistics for setting up a bep program95 l.jpg

    Logistics for Setting up a BEP program

    • School-wide PBS in place

      • School-wide expectations defined and taught

      • Reward system operating

      • Clear and consistent consequences for problem behavior

  • Process for identifying a student who may be appropriate for BEP

    • Student is not responding to SWPBS expectations

    Escalating behavior model l.jpg

    Escalating Behavior Model

    As developed by Geoff Colvin and George Sugai, 1989

    Revised 1994 and spring 2004 OSEP/PBIS


    Understanding escalating behavior l.jpg

    Assumptions

    Behavior is _________(function)

    Behavior is _________ (lawful)

    Behavior is escalated through __________ (practice)

    Behavior can be changed through an _____________approach

    (instructional)

    Understanding Escalating Behavior

    OSEP/PBIS


    Sequence of escalating behaviors l.jpg

    Sequence of Escalating Behaviors

    • Student’s escalating behaviors typically follow a sequence.

      • It starts off relatively small and neutral

      • It intensifies and shifts to personal affront

    • The teacher escalates with the student

      • Same sequence for teacher

      • Sequence is interactive

        • If teacher would have backed off, the situation would not have escalated

    OSEP/PBIS


    Seven main phases of escalation l.jpg

    Seven Main Phases of Escalation

    • Calm

    • Trigger

    • Agitation

    OSEP/PBIS


    Interventions for agitated phase l.jpg

    Interventions for Agitated Phase

    • Focus on reducing anxiety…ask “how do I de-escalate and then re-introduce the task?”

      • Make structural, environmental modifications

      • Provide reasonable options and choices

      • Involve in successful engagements (alternative task) and allow de-escalation time, then

      • “Do you want to begin this…now or do you want 2 more minutes of time?”

    OSEP/PBIS


    Acceleration phase l.jpg
