If you’re interested in finding a group near you, contact us with your city and zip code, and we will try to put you in touch with a trained facilitator near your community. Upcoming groups are listed on our Group Directory Page.
If you are a current SENG Model Parent Group Facilitator or Trainer, please contact SENG to make sure your certification is up-to-date. If we cannot reach you, you will not be included in the facilitator page which will be published online shortly.
If you want to start your own SENG-Model group, you need to be trained as a facilitator! Please see our training page or contact us and we will be happy to put you in contact with a trainer in your region, with whom you can discuss the possibility of setting up a future session, and who can also answer all of your questions about the model and the process.
If you can’t find a live group in your area, you can join one of SENG’s Online Parent Support Groups. SENG Online Parent Support Groups bring 10 to 15 interested parents of gifted children together to discuss such topics as communication, motivation, discipline, intensity, perfectionism, and peer relationships. The online facilitator of the group is knowledgeable about parenting and about educating gifted children. The facilitator provides a non-judgmental and nurturing online discussion. The parents of the high-ability children are themselves also a rich resource of information, and they are able to get fresh ideas from other parents and from A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, the book around which the discussions are organized.
