Guided Reading
A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children
By Webb, Gore, Amend and DeVries

Meet with a group of parents for 8 consecutive weeks to discuss issues of giftedness in a SENG Model Parent Group. Times and locations to be determined by interest level. 

Each week we will read one or two chapters of the book A Parent’s Guide to Gifted Children and discuss them as a group in a facilitated discussion format developed by SENG (Social and 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 guided reading will be facilitated by Newenka DuMont.  Newenka is a certified SENG Model Parent Group master facilitator and the Illinois SENG (Social and Emotional Needs of the Gifted) Liaison.  She has been leading guided reading groups since 2003.  Newenka has been active in the Chicago area in gifted circles for almost 20 years.  She is the current president of the Chicago Gifted Community Center and is on the board of the Illinois Association for Gifted Children.  More importantly, Newenka is the mother of two gifted daughters.

Cost: $41

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.
