Description, Learning Goals, & Documentation


Let's discuss how what we see (and hear, taste, feel) in the world might not be the same for everyone else. Topics include sensory processing sensitivity and other sensory traits such as face blindness, aphantasia, synesthesia - including misophonia and mirror-touch (empathy). Are you a highly sensitive person? Are autism, ADHD, and being HSP possibly related? How might having sensory processing sensitivity traits impact parenting styles? (Note, this can also relate to teaching and management styles!) Also learn about the self/other theory and how this might influence your perspectives and choices.
