If your child is…

The problem might due to: giftedness, emotional sensitivity and overexcitabilities
Some gifted children with overexcitability have a high emotional reactivity, energy level and high arousal of the central nervous system.
Five areas of overexcitability had been identified (Dabrowski, 1972)
Gifted children tend to experience the world with more intensity and this can lead to great successes, innovations, and wonderful creativity but it can also be very frustrating for a child and a parent.
At ChiLD we will identify any OE using the The Overexcitability Questionnaire -Two (OEQII).
