Beyond Academics: Social and Emotional Needs of the Gifted Carolyn Kottmeyer
NEW: Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted: 30 Essays on Giftedness, 30 Years of SENG. Makes a great gift!
SENG seeks to inform gifted individuals, their families, and the professionals who work with them, about the unique social and emotional needs of gifted persons.
We support programs that foster in gifted individuals the mental health and social competence necessary for them to be free to choose ways to develop and express their abilities and talents fully. With support, gifted individuals can develop abilities that enhance their own lives and the lives of others. Without understanding and support, they may be inhibited in the development of their gifts and talents, which can result in significant negative personal and societal consequences. SENG empowers caring families and communities to influence more positively and effectively the development of giftedness in those individuals entrusted to their care.
SENG and the National Association for Gifted Children collaborated on this brochure to provide information to physicians and healthcare providers as well as to parents.
