“The education system does not understand us.”

Unfortunately, I hear this all too often from international students, as well as from clients, trainees, and their children. And every time I hear this it breaks my heart.

As a highly sensitive person myself, one who has learned through personal experience, exhaustive research, client counseling, and teaching, I feel I can provide a clear picture of the world of a sensitive person.

Based on my experience it is important that one does not judge a sensitive young person from a single angle or perspective. These talented children benefit from a broader, more holistic vision.

It is important that we respectfully consider the sensitive child’s world of cognitive, physical, psychological, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. Also, we must look scientifically at the facets of understanding in which FEELINGS are key to understanding the sensitive child.

Common arguments such as, “she is too shy”, “he has to toughen up”, “he fidgets constantly”, or “she cannot seem to concentrate” are all too often red flags that a sensitive child is waving. Highly sensitive children think differently, play differently, react differently, learn differently, and they feel physically different than their peers. Of course, this is true of many children but in particular, the 20% who are most talented.

I help you through the jungle that’ s the education system and to provide you with school-day memories worth remembering.

How would you describe yourself, as a highly sensitive child, in your school years?
