Community Support Group

The Community Support Group is a bridge to understanding the “whole child” and the fact that we all learn differently as reflected in our Different Abilities Development Model. The group was established in 2008 to introduce parents and educators to the work of Dr. Ross W. Greene and his approach for working with children who exhibit behavioral challenges entitled Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS), formerly known as Collaborative Problem Solving. A subsequent goal of The Community Support Group is to provide information about practices in progressive education that foster academic success while considering the social-emotional well-being of our children.
