Join us for this episode as we delve into the world of Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) and how to best support a highly sensitive child. This can go hand-in-hand with dyslexia, so it may be a topic that resonates with a specific group of our Dyslexia Quest audience. Julie specializes in the trait of high sensitivity and has helped thousands of highly sensitive people around the world.

As an HSP herself, Julie understands what it is like to live with high sensitivity and strong emotions. She is also mother to two highly sensitive children, and so she is well-equipped to help and support other parents of HSP children. She is recognized as an expert in sensory processing sensitivity and consult with companies and corporate leaders that want to harness the incredible gifts of the HSP in the workplace.
