Collaborative Problem Solving

Collaborative Problem Solving

How teachers and educators can use CPS in the classroom

Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) helps teachers and special needs students work together to understand each other’s concerns in order to find solutions to the real-life problems that are creating challenging behaviors at school.

The CPS approach helps teachers understand which underdeveloped or lagging thinking skills may be contributing to their student’s difficulty meeting expectations in the classroom.

We’ve put together a tool to help you:

• Better understand the reasons for consistently challenging behavior.

• Better understand your options in the classroom.

• Understand the student’s concerns.

• Understand and express your concerns as their teacher.

• Brainstorm solutions together in a way that addresses both sets of concerns.

• Come up with a solution that works for everyone—and ultimately teaches your student important problem-solving skills for the future.
