Parents of gifted or twice-exceptional children and teens are invited to participate in a guided discussion group, led by Dr. Lisa Hancock, a SENG certified master facilitator, about the strengths, challenges, and needs of gifted and twice-exceptional children, and the parenting issues related to those needs. Topics include behaviors, characteristics, overexcitabilities, intensity, perfectionism, stress, relationships, existential depression, concurrent and possibly hidden disabilities, underachievement, academic strategies, testing, and advocacy.

The group follows the SENG model and refers to the book  A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, by James Webb, et al. For more information on SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of Gifted) see

Registration is $249 per person, or $450 for a couple. All participants need to purchase and bring the book  A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children, by James Webb, et al., to each session.

This group is open to individuals who are currently parenting gifted/2e children ages toddler through teen/young adult. It is not intended for professionals who work with gifted/2e children.
