Join me for an interesting morning as we discuss complex and advanced learners in Hong Kong. These unique individuals often need extra consideration to make sure the environment is responsive, stimulating and supportive for learning and development. Discover the traits and characteristics of complex learners and how development can be affected throughout the school years. Using Maslow's Hierarchy as a base, we will explore self-actualization, esteem, belonging, safety and basic physiological needs in order to maximize individual growth at home and school.
