“It’s like inviting a gifted expert into my living room!”
SENG’s webinars (SENGinars) provide convenient access to many of the top experts in the gifted field discussing issues related to the social and emotional needs of the gifted. The 90-minute webinars are designed expressly for parents, educators and mental health professionals who work with gifted children. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of each live webinar.
NOTE: If you register and are unable to attend the live event, you will receive a link to the recording and slides approximately one week after the live event date. You can also take advantage of these excellent resources by ordering any of our past webinars through the SENG Store. Only people who register for a live event will receive access to the slides as a separate pdf file.
