NEW Course – Making Sense of Sensitive Kids


Fifteen to twenty percent of children are estimated to fall on the sensitivity spectrum and demonstrate an enhanced receptivity to sensory stimuli such as sound, touch, taste, or emotional/perceptual acuity. They are often described as more intense and easily affected by sensory stimuli. Their enhanced receptivity to the world can quickly lead to feelings of overwhelm and stress.

Sensitive kids need receptive adults who can convey to a child that they are not difficult or too big to handle. This course will cover the neuroscience and genetics of sensitivity, as well as the developmental, emotional, and attachment needs of the sensitive child including alpha and alarm problems.

Each participant will receive a copy of the book Rest, Play, Grow, course handouts, as well as light refreshments and beverages. The course is 5 hours in duration and the class size is small to enable discussion and a personalized learning experience.

Certificates of completion will be provided for professional development.



Course participants will be considered clients of Kid’s Best Bet, Counselling and Family Resource Center, and will be able to book counselling appointments and bypass any waitlist that may be in effect.
