The Highly Sensitive Child
January 23, 2019
7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Genet Elementary School Auditorium
Presenter: Dr. Jennifer Bashant

Is your child easily overwhelmed by bright lights, smells, coarse fabrics, or tight clothing? Does your child become overwhelmed when they have a lot to do? Do you notice your child needs to withdraw during busy days, into bed or a darkened room or some other place where he can have privacy? Does your child notice details like works of art, nature, or others’ feelings? Does your child have a rich and complex imagination? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may have a highly sensitive child, which is both a gift and a challenge. During this workshop, you will learn strategies for making life easier for both you and your child, and reducing the number and intensity of meltdowns.
