DESCRIPTION:

Some students in our schools are found to be highly sensitive in nature. Researchers such as Thomas Boyce have studied these children and had found that they have an enhanced receptivity to environmental stimuli and as a result, are more affected by it. Activation of the senses can be more provocative with touch, taste, smell, or hearing for example, being heightened in reaction. This session will explore the nature of these students, how it may affect their behaviour and learning in the classroom. Then we will look at some practical ways in which a classroom teacher and school team can help to provide and environment in which these students can thrive and learn.
