• When adults rethink
    challenging kids,
    amazing things can happen.
  • Conventional wisdom is wrong:
    challenging kids
    lack the skill,
    not the will, to behave well.
  • Challenging kids deserve the
    same compassion and
    effective treatment
    as kids
    with other learning disabilities.
  • Our evidence-based approach,
    Collaborative Problem
    Solving,
    works in homes,
    schools, and treatment settings.
