F for Flopping: Positive Behaviour Support

Flopping is when a child’s body goes limp, so that they may then be kneeling or lying down on the floor. Flopping can occur across multiple contexts (e.g., childcare setting, preschool, kindergarten, school, disability support services, or youth services.) When a child begins to persistently exhibit flopping behaviours, the climate of these environments can change dramatically. A considerable amount of time and energy can be spent on the child showing the flopping behaviour, which can have a deleterious effect on the quality of the educational experience for all children.
