An individualized treatment plan in the context of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a custom plan created for each child based on their specific needs and goals.

  • The plan is designed to help children replace problem behaviors with positive ones

  • A functional behavior assessment (FBA) is conducted to understand the function, or purpose, of the problem behavior.

  • The FBA identifies what is maintaining of causing challenging behavior, and then the behavior intervention plan (BIP) outlines strategies to improve or replace that behavior.

  • The BIP uses intervention strategies to replace a problem behavior with an appropriate alternative that satisfies the same motivation or function

  • The BIP should arise from the function of the patient's problem behavior

  • The plan includes specific skills that will be worked on with the child, how the data will be collected o monitor the child's progress, and information that will allow us to determine when the child has mastered the skill

  • The plan is individualized per client and no treatment plan is going to be the same.
