Parent Support Groups

February 26, 2014 8:38 AM | Linda Zanieski (Administrator)
If you are looking for a support group to discuss the unique aspects of raising gifted children, please sign up for our CGCC SENG Model Parent Group information list.  We will notify list participants of upcoming parent groups. There is no obligation to sign up for a group, this is purely informational.  

SENG Model Parent Groups are groups of 10 - 20 parents of gifted or talented children who meet for 8 - 10 weeks to discuss topics of mutual interest, such as motivation, discipline, stress management and peer relationships.  These groups are organized by trained facilitators and make use of the book A Parent's Guide to Gifted Children by Webb, Gore, Amend and DeVries. 

One such parent support group is starting in the Oak Park area the first week of March.  Sessions will be held on Tuesday evenings or Thursday mornings.  This group is run by CGCC member Sheryl Stoller.  You may contact her at for additional information.
