FLIP IT Self-Paced Online Course

FLIP IT is a strategy that offers a simple, kind, strength-based, commonsense, and effective four-step process to address children’s day-to-day challenging behaviors. The four steps are embodied in the FLIP mnemonic, which stands for Feelings, Limits, Inquiries and Prompts. FLIP IT is nothing new, but transforms best practice into a strategy that is easy to remember, applicable in a variety of challenging situations, and portable.

You can learn the FLIP IT strategy, on your own time and at your own pace, with the FLIP IT Online Course!

The FLIP IT Online Course is approximately 2.5 hours, including interaction, reflection, application of skills learned, and a final assessment. You are welcome to complete the course all in one sitting, or you can complete it over time. Empower yourself and your team members by purchasing this course today! You can also access this free demo.

There are two options available for the FLIP IT Online Course: (1) the Competency Version which includes a final assessment and a certificate that reflects hours; and (2) the Participation Version which has no final assessment but does include a certificate of participation. The course content for both versions are the same, providing participants with the knowledge to begin using this strategy to reduce children’s use of challenging behaviors. The difference between the two options is based on what the learner needs upon completion of the course.

FLIP IT Online Course


This version allows the participant to experience the course content, and at the end of this version will be a 20-question assessment. In order to “pass” the course and receive the certificate with hours reflected, the participant will be expected to answer 80% of the questions correctly.

FLIP IT Online Course


This version allows the enrolled participant to experience the course and to receive a certificate of completion (no hours reflected), and does not include an assessment of knowledge acquisition.

The FLIP IT Online Courses have been going great. I bought one for each of our classroom teachers. For the most part, they are more seasoned and have already received FLIP IT training in some kind of format, but they have shared that this course was a good refresher. They really like the idea that they can complete it in sections when they have free time, which allows them to devote more uninterrupted time to the material and really focus. A few of them have finished the course and have gone back to review modules that they feel they need more support in. They really like the idea that they still have access to materials even after they have completed the course. Some teachers have shared that they learn better when they are able to go back and hear the same information again, and so this format is something that has been really good for those folks.
