Where There’s A Skill, There’s A Way

Collaborative Problem Solving [CPS]

Many of our kids on the autism spectrum have challenging behaviors. And many times, conventional rewards and punishments just don’t work.

I remember times when I’d simply punish louder or in a bigger quantity, as if that would make a difference. Just like talking loudly to someone who doesn’t speak our language, in hopes that our volume will bridge the language barrier.

Dr. J. Stuart Ablon talks about his work with Think: Kids–where he’s found that challenging kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well. And they deserve the same compassion and effective treatment as kids with other learning disabilities.
