SKILLS Global Student Behavior Support Software

Item #: 80147 | Grades K-12
Status: $19 admin fee applies

SKILLS Global gives software to schools in hurricane areas to help students cope

SKILLS Global Disaster Support Donation Program- This donation program provides eligible* schools with free access to behavioral health software for improving the well being of their students.

The Skills BIP Builder is an online Behavior Intervention Planning (BIP) tool that can help educators support their students by identifying maladaptive behaviors from traumatic experiences and handling them with care and positive reinforcement.

SKILLS Global is generously providing their Skills BIP Builder software free of charge to hurricane-impacted public schools for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year.

Education professionals use the tool to craft function-based behavior intervention plans that outline strategies to reduce and eliminate maladaptive behaviors. This donation provides 50 behavior plans ($399 value) for a school to use for the 2017 -18 school year.

"The trauma inflicted upon people affected by natural disasters may take years to heal. As adults we are better equipped to process the emotions of despair, stress, and sadness than children. Traumatic events can cause invisible scarring that manifest in children by temper tantrums, feeling numb, withdrawal, nervousness and the inability to sleep alone at night. These traumatic experiences can be extremely hard to cope with." Eliana Ferriera, CEO, SKILLS Global

Educators using the Skills® BIP Builder report that it:
  • Saves an enormous amount of time
  • Provides a roadmap for the direction to take in creating BIPs
  • Suggests interventions even BCBAs and other professionals have not even considered!

From a Parent's Perspective: “The Skills BIP Builder is one of the most transformative tools I have ever used. As a parent it allowed me to have a true seat at the table deciding what to do about my son's behavior in the classroom. The BIP Builder gave me peace of mind knowing the intervention we chose was the one shown scientifically to be most effective. It worked! And it took less time to create the more effective BIP than when we had attempted to create a BIP without the Builder. Effective and efficient, the Skills BIP Builder was a real game changer for us.” Shannon Penrod, host of Autism Live on YouTube
