Helpings kids who think, feel, perceive and process the world differently
I sometimes see children who have great insight into how they think and feel but do not have the emotional literacy to express that.
They may be aware that they are “different” to others but don’t really know what, why and/or how.
There may be a knowing that how they think, feel, perceive and process the world are different to others but don’t exactly know what that is.
They are often very much misunderstood as others may judge them based on the “usual framework, patterns or expectations”.
If not careful, they may blame themselves or try to avoid and disconnect from the world.
So what is the plan?
Equip the kids and their families with better emotional literacy in order to navigate this better.
