SENGinars bring you knowledgeable experts discussing issues related to the social and emotional needs of the gifted. Most SENGinars run 90 minutes and include a slide presentation and time for questions. Registered guests can participate in the live SENGinar and will automatically receive unlimited access to a recorded version one week after the live event.
SENG Model Parent Groups are structured to bring together 10 to 20 interested parents of gifted and talented children to discuss such topics as motivation, discipline, stress management, and peer relationships. The co-facilitators of the group, though they are knowledgeable about parenting and about educating gifted/talented children, do not attempt to give expert advice to families. Instead, their facilitation provides a non-judgmental and nurturing atmosphere. The parents of the high ability children are themselves 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 sessions are organized.
SENG conferences focus on the social and emotional needs of the gifted. We believe that recognizing, understanding, and accepting the unique social and emotional needs of this population are the first priorities for teachers, parents, and counselors. SENG supports strong gifted education programs, but we believe the emotional piece is the foundation for the development of healthy, happy, well-adjusted, appropriately educated, and contributing gifted members of society.
The SENG Honor Roll provides a special opportunity to give recognition to educators of all levels who demonstrate commitment to helping a gifted child or young adult. These special people are pivotal in the lives of gifted individuals.
The James T. Webb Scholarship currently extends the opportunity for identified gifted and talented students from minority populations and their parents to participate in the SENG Annual Conference. Students attend the program for children or teens. Parents attend concurrent adult sessions.
National Parenting Gifted Children Week is a national opportunity to raise parent awareness of the special learning and social emotional needs of their gifted and talented children.
Continuing Education Home Study Courses allow you to earn credit from your home, working at your own pace to prepare to better serve the gifted community. The SENG Home Study Courses are developed from leading resource books on aspects of giftedness.
