Course Description

Working with children that use challenging behavior is no easy task! While there are endless amounts of strategies out there to help reduce challenging behaviors, very few are as simple as the FLIP IT strategy. FLIP IT is a strategy that offers a simple, kind, strengths-based, commonsense, and effective 4-step process to address children's day to day behaviors. The 4 steps in the FLIP IT mnemonic (F-Feelings, L-Limits, I-Inquiries, and P-Prompts) are nothing new, but use best practice to help early education professionals remember and apply these strategies in a variety of different situations.

Each participant will receive 2.0 CHC for attending and completing all required coursework.


Registration is: $15.00
