The Highly Sensitive Child The Highly Sensitive Person


Are you Highly Sensitive? The Highly Sensitive Person’s Self-Test as developed by Dr. Elaine Aron.

Is your child Highly Sensitive? As developed by Dr. Elaine Aron.

There is so much value to gain and research shared from Alane in this conversation that impacts us all. The people we meet daily, people like you and me. Teachers, parents, physicians, therapists, caregivers, neighbours, friends, and of course, our children in their classrooms, with their friends, in their community and at home.

May you receive much benefit and share it with those you know who will also gain from hearing about this topic.

In this conversation Alane shared the 5 things HSPs (Highly Sensitive People) need to do to flourish, how high sensitivity is often a misunderstood trait and is often misdiagnosed, and Alane even took us through a 20 second experience to lower our arousal level and help our children do the same.

Here’s to honouring your sensitivity, and the sensitivity in the children you know and nurture.
