Do parents and educators give sufficient thought to what GT learners face on their journey through secondary? Time doesn’t slow down as students reach the secondary classroom.

THURS 2/2 at 6:30pm | Communicating Care & Connection: Parenting Supports & Gifted Youth

SENG Model Parent Groups (SMPG) bring individuals and families together to discuss the challenges associated with raising a gifted child. The co-facilitators of these groups, though knowledgeable about parenting and gifted education, do not attempt to give advice.

Webb, PhD., Arlene DeVries, M.S.E., Janet Gore, M.Ed. and Ed Amend, Psy.D....
