F for Flopping Forms: Positive Behaviour Support
When a child begins to persistently exhibit flopping behaviours, the climate of the context (e.g. childcare, preschool, kindergarten, school, disability support and youth service) 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. Research consistently shows that managing behaviour is linked to staff experiencing high levels of stress, burnout, and job dissatisfaction.
Based on the evidence-based Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) approach this user-friendly guide, F for Flopping will help you develop a comprehensive PBS plan step-by-step:
- Work out why your child is flopping (assess),
- How to respond when your child flops (manage), and
- How to prevent them from flopping (prevent).
Use the practical tools (checklists, forms and strategies) provided to develop comprehensive PBS plans that can be used to support children of all ages consistently in all contexts. This invaluable resource is useful for parents, caregivers, educators in childcare, early childhood, primary and secondary schools, disability, mental health, allied health and supervisory professionals.
