SENG Support Groups

SENG Support Groups

 SENG Support groups are designed specifically to address some of the unique issues, needs and, challenges faced by varying gifted communities across the nation and beyond. The online platform allows individuals to meet together face to face to discuss these issues, needs, and, challenges with the guidance of an expert. Loosely based on the SMPG (SENG Model Parent Group) the groups offer support in a private setting and allows gifted persons to connect with each regardless of their location. Are you looking to connect? Join a Gifted Support Group today. If you have any questions, please contact Michael Postma at [email protected].

Gifted Parenting Support Group

Raising a gifted child can be quite challenging. Gifted children develop atypically in both body and mind; something the parental help books do not address. Parenting gifted children can also be isolating as many of your peers just do not quite understand (or empathize with) the challenges that you face on a daily basis. This Gifted Parenting support group offers the chance to connect with other gifted parents and discuss the highs and lows of raising a gifted child.

Cost: $125
Facilitators: Carol Malueg and Joan Larson
Tuesdays from 7:00-8:30 PM EDT
