Collaborative Problem Solving® (CPS) is a big shift when it comes to understanding your child’s challenging behavior and what to do about it. It is proven to reduce challenging behavior, improve family relationships, and help your child build the skills they lack. This webinar will introduce you to a method for partnering with your child to identify the triggers for their challenging behavior, and work together to produce a game plan for how to handle problems before they happen.

How often we wonder why some students can achieve milestones while others struggle to keep up, and if these differences are part of typical development or indicators of more significant challenges? Understanding child development can be an extremely powerful and helpful lens for teachers. In this session, we will present child developmental along a continuum, from typically developing children to those with developmental challenges in behavior or learning. Some behavioral and learning issues that are outside the pattern of typical development will be explored and we will discuss the developmental tasks usually mastered at particular ages and phases.
