Making Sense of Sensitive Kids

January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Some children seem to be more intense and sensitive in their response to sensory stimuli in their surroundings. We can all feel overwhelmed at times but for some sensitive kids it can get very stressful, evoking strong emotions they don’t know how to make sense of. In order to help sensitive children live in their world we need to start by making sense of them and appreciating things through their eyes. There is much parents and teachers can do to help sensitive children find rest so that they can play and grow.

Join us Wednesday, January 25, 2023 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm for this webinar that will help you better understand the sensitive child, their stress and strong emotions, and will offer strategies to help them find rest so they can play and grow.

With special guest, Dr. Deborah MacNamara, Clinical Counsellor and Developmentalist, Faculty at the Neufeld Institute, Director of Kid’s Best Bet Counselling Centre, and author of the bestselling book: Rest, Play, Grow: Making Sense of Preschoolers.
