In this presentation, Sandi and Melissa Schwartz offer practical guidance on how educators can provide support to highly sensitive students and their families. This session highlights observable traits, typical behaviors as reported by classroom teachers and parents, and adaptive strategies for helping these children. Participants receive a checklist that can be shared with parents and used as a foundation for creating a mutual plan of cooperation between home and school.
