FLIP IT One-Day Training
This live, one-day training teaches participants the four supportive steps of FLIP IT that are designed to help young children (ages 3-8) learn about their feelings, gain self-control, and reduce challenging behavior. The four steps are embodied in the FLIP mnemonic: F – Feelings, L – Limits, I – Inquiries, P – Prompts. This strategy is nothing new, but transforms best practice into something that is easy to remember, applicable in a variety of challenging situations, and portable.
