Every day, SENG receives messages, emails, and phone calls from members of the gifted community seeking peers who will truly understand them. SENG Connect is our way of bringing these individuals together in a supportive environment, to bond over their similarities, traits, and experiences.
What is SENG Connect?
SENG Connect is an online community which provides gifted individuals and gifted families with a safe haven for discussion, support and learning.
Through this service, SENG Connect offers an online version of SENG Model Parent Groups (SMPG), as well as certified facilitator-led interactive discussion groups for adults on a variety of topics of interest to the global gifted community. Topics such as connectivity, education, gifted adults, diversity, creativity, parenting, social/emotional well-being, and many others will be explored.
