Many students with a history of challenging behaviors have a set of lived experiences that have hindered their social, emotional, and behavioral development. They simply haven’t had the opportunities to master the necessary thinking and problem solving skills our education system requires. Many of these students have also experienced multiple forms of trauma in early childhood. The Collaborative Learning ProgramTM utilizes a social-cognitive approach which focuses primarily on the thinking underlying student behavior. Our behavioral consultants work with school districts to build or refine existing programs to better meet the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students.
