Parenting the Highly Sensitive Child 

Parenting the Highly Sensitive Child

Wednesday, January 8th | 6:00-7:30pm

Boulder Country Day School, 4820 Nautilus Court North, Boulder

Using neuroscience as her guide, Sarah Ahn will explain Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), the Highly Sensitive “diagnosis”, and most importantly offer some parenting strategies and tips to employ with sensitive kiddos. Sarah is passionate about helping parents create authentic and reflective relationships with their kids. For over 15 years, she has worked with parents to help them define and rewrite their parenting “roadmaps”.

This event is free and open to the public.

Different and gifted minds are as critical to the survival of our human species as the concept of biodiversity is to the sustainability of the planet. But within traditional developmental world views, as a society, we emphasize competitive performance within increasingly ”neurotypical” expectations. For gifted kids, perhaps more than any other population, this negatively affects development and in time, their overall wellness. In this session, Dr. Marlo Payne Thurman will briefly discuss how gifted children differ in their thinking, learning, processing and even in their experience of the world. Dr. Thurman will then detail how these differences can ultimately take their toll on the emotional and even the physical health of today’s gifted youth, targeting what can and should be done to help. 

Wednesday, November 20, at 6:30 p.m.

BVSD Education Center, 6500 Arapahoe Road., Boulder
