Bright, intense, and gifted or twice-exceptional children offer unique parenting challenges. During a pandemic, with everyone at home and increased anxieties, these may become even more amplified.

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, to talk 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.
