A Picture of the Sensitive Child: Helping ‘Orchid’ Children Thrive
I came across this fantastic three part series of articles through a friend, Krista Reinhardt-Ruprecht of Big Dog Little Dog Healing Arts about children with sensory issues. She has a quite a bit of experience with the children this article is calling Orchid Children. I love learning about sensory challenges and development of children as an art therapist and this article delivers both. "Despite neurobiological differences and heightened reactivity in (orchid) sensitive children, it is the relational environment they grow in that makes the difference developmentally." Checkout part 1 of 3 here. I will post the other two parts as they are released.
