Do you live in the north or northeast valley?  Do you want to continue your parent networking and learn even more about how giftedness impacts a child’s growth and development, strengthening your parenting strategies?  Sign up for a SENG Model Parent Group to be launched after the Parent Institute!

Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted (SENG) Model Parent Groups bring together 10-20 parents of gifted and talented children to discuss such topics as motivation, discipline, stress management and peer relationships over a period of six weeks in a nurturing and non-judgmental environment.  The cost of the SENG Parent Group includes the first group meeting on September 21st, the five additional weekly meetings either in the Deer Valley Unified School District or Scottsdale area as well as the cost of materials. A spouse may register as a guest for the discounted rate, which includes the sharing of materials.

Parents who need childcare in order to attend the September 21st class should register their K-5 children for “SENG: Childcare” which is available for an additional cost.

*Proceeds from the 2019 Parent Institute will benefit the gifted programs of the event host.  Would you like YOUR school district to host a future AAGT Parent Institute? If so, contact AAGT at (602) 882-1848 or via email at officemanager@azgifted.com.
