Spring Group Launching Soon
What Is A SENG Support Group?
SENG Support Groups are facilitated group meetings of 8-10 parents of gifted and twice-exceptional children who meet once a week for 6 weeks to share experiences, discuss challenges, and feel supported by a community of individuals similar to themselves.
Groups are co-facilitated by two SENG certified facilitators who initiate discussions on key topics such as communication, motivation, school, and relationships. The facilitators foster the creation of a safe environment for the group to openly share, but do not provide individual expert advice during sessions.
How do we learn?
Group sessions revolve around weekly suggested reading in the newly revised text, “A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children.” Additional videos and articles may also be supplied by facilitators to support key areas of interest for the group discussion. The majority of learning happens through live group discussions.
