    LOGYC, Learning Opportunities for Gifted Youth, is a place where children can learn among other gifted children and have the opportunity to work at ability level versus being age restricted. At LOGYC, children can feel accepted for who they are, without having to hide their strengths or weaknesses. They don't need to underachieve to conform or feel isolated in feeling "not normal." They receive support for oversensitivities and integrating into a group learning environment.

    This unique community is a safe space to be gifted and to connect with like-minded peers, for students and parents alike.

    Registering for the co-op allows you to register for our many fabulous classes - check them out! 

    Many of our classes have flexible age ranges, as gifted kids often have asynchronistic development. If you have any questions about class details, whether a class would be appropriate for your kid[s], or the coop in general, please email us at logyc@chicagogiftedcommunity.org.

    SOS for 2E

    Panel Discussion – 
    Navigating the School Years with a 2e Student

    SOS for 2e kicks off this year with an expert 2e panel.  What do a college student, a therapist and a community activist have in common? They are all 2e!  Each member of our guest panel has navigated their way through the educational system successfully.  Come and listen to each unique story and how they cope socially, emotionally and academically through their school years.  Each guest member will introduce themselves and tell you their stories of successes and failures. What motivated them to push past their disabilities and what they each discovered after they graduated high school.  60 minutes or more will be provided to ask questions. 

    Below are the specially selected panel bios for this event:

    STUDENT

    Sara Marie Wheeler is a recent graduate of Neuqua Valley High School in 204. Gifted with communication and invisible physical disabilities, Miss Wheeler took advantage of early graduation last school year (December) and is currently starting her second semester at College of DuPage. Teaching teachers and other school staff how to adequately prepare for and accommodate her learning needs has been challenging, and she hopes to help make the journey easier for others who share similar learning needs.

    PROFESSIONAL THERAPIST

    Jessica Brown-McBroom is a licensed clinical professional counselor at Centennial Counseling Center.  Jessica carries her own personal story of struggle and success as a 2e student.  Jessica received her bachelor’s in psychology from Wheaton College and returned three years later to pursue her master’s degree in clinical psychology.

    COMMUNITY ACTIVIST

    Newenka DuMont is a community activist championing the rights for gifted children.  Newenka is the luckiest dyslexic you could meet!  She grew up knowing that she was dumb and slow, only to discover in middle school that she was in fact quite a capable learner. She has a degree in computer engineering and worked as a management consultant for becoming an active in the gifted community.  She is the current president and a founding member of the Chicago Gifted Community Center, she is working with the Illinois Association for Gifted Children (IAGC) as a member of their board, and she is a trained SENG Parent Group master facilitator. 

    Please RSVP to sosfor2e@gmail.com if you are interested in attending this event.

    A Raising Gifted Children
    Study Group

    Meet with a group of parents for 8 consecutive weeks beginning Wednesday, September 25,  2019 ending November 13th, 2019 to discuss issues of giftedness in a SENG Model Parent Group. We will meet from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. in Hinsdale, though there is an option to attend sessions 2 - 8 through a Google hangout.  

    Each week we will read one or two chapters of A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children and discuss them as a group in a facilitated discussion format developed by SENG (Supporting the Emotion Needs of the Gifted).  Additional readings from the gifted press will be provided.  We will cover a variety of topics relevant to raising gifted children, such as maintaining motivation and enthusiasm, avoiding underachievement, coping with intensity, perfectionism, stress, idealism, and depression, making and keeping friends, handling siblings, and more.  

    The cost for participation will be $40 for members and $60 for non-members to cover venue and materials.  Additionally, each participant will need to acquire a copy of the book, which is readily available online, or directly from the publisher, Great Potential Press. (Confidential fee waivers available, please enquire here.)

    The guided reading will be facilitated by Newenka DuMont.  Newenka is a certified SENG Model Parent Group master facilitator.  She has been leading guided reading groups in our area since 2003.  Newenka is a board member of both the Illinois Association for Gifted Children and the Chicago Gifted Community Center, where she is the current president. More importantly, Newenka is the mother of two, adult, gifted daughters. Linda Zanieski, Chicago Gifted Community Center founding board member and Treasurer, will co-facilitate. She also is the current organizer of The Chicago Gifted Children Meetup and the mother of a gifted teen.

    The group size will be limited to 15 people, on a first come, first registered basis. We will need at least 8 people to form a group. 

    Email Newenka with questions.

    Parent Education Series

    CGCC is partnering with Midwest Academy for Gifted Education (MAGE)  to present this free series. This month: 

    Gifted 101: Is My Child Gifted?

    In this session, learn about gifted child characteristics, identification, parenting challenges, educational dilemmas, and social and emotional needs. Learn what words like 2e, highly gifted, and academically talented really mean, and about the Dabrowski OEs. If you suspect that your child might be gifted, this workshop will give you the primer of how to find the answers that you are looking for, and how to best support your child in all facets of life, and a number of local in-person, online, and literary resources to support you in your journey. There is a free Experimental Outsider Math Class during this workshop as a trial, if your child enjoys math and meets the age criteria for the class. 

    Midwest Academy for Gifted Education and the Chicago Gifted Community Center are excited to bring you a Free Gifted Parenting Education Series, centrally located in the City of Chicago. The format of each event in the series is a 30-minute expert panel presentation on the topic, followed by  15 minutes of questions for the panelists and a 15 minutes to mingle. The idea is to bring together a parent of gifted child, a mental health professional, and a gifted educator, for different perspectives and ideas around solutions. 

    Registration is required for this free event. If you wish, a donation may be made during registration or in cash at the event to support CGCC.  Or consider becoming a member . CGCC is a non-profit all-volunteer organization that relies on member dues to support events  such as these for gifted children and their families. Annual membership is $25.
