Dr. Ablon presents a paradigm-shifting model to transform classroom discipline that has been
shown to reduce behavioral challenges, teacher stress and disciplinary interventions while
helping our most at-risk students build the skills they need to succeed. Based on the latest
neuroscience which shows that challenging students lack the skill―not the will―to behave,
the evidence-based Collaborative Problem Solving approach provides educators a clear
framework that can be implemented in both general and special-education settings.
