Web resource of the Week--SENG

After a short spring break hiatus, we are back with more resources for you.  Each week, we plan to bring you a web resource that we have found has been helpful to parents.  SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) is a non‐profit organization that cares and advocates for the unique social emotional needs of gifted children and their families.  Their mission is to provide support for families and empower parents and professionals to understand and support gifted children.  Many families find it difficult to find support for the challenges they face in a world where some may assume that a gifted child has it made and doesn't need as much support.

Their website has a free resource library, articles and a recommended reading list. You will also notice that they have seminars--the seminar coming up on April 19th is Teaching Academics to Gifted Youth with Asperger's.   The seminars are typically available for a fee.  SENG also has a commitment to promoting gifted education and support for students with diverse backgrounds who are often underserved.
