Understanding the Highly Sensitive Child

A highly sensitive child [HSC] is one of the fifteen to twenty percent of children born with a nervous system that is highly aware and quick to react to everything. This makes them quick to grasp subtle changes, prefer to reflect deeply before acting, and generally behave conscientiously. They are also easily overwhelmed by high levels of stimulation, sudden changes, and the emotional distress of others (Aron, 2018).

In this workshop parents, caregivers, and professionals will learn to better understand these children and ways to help them manage in the home and the classroom.


  • Identifying whether a child is highly sensitive

  • Exploring struggles that accompany these types of children and possible solutions

  • Understanding how parenting style can impact HSC

  • Develop strategies to build resiliency in HSCI
