“A SENG parent group dedicated to twice exceptional!  I was able to relax into the experience with parents who understood and resources that mattered. A space to support, share, and learn.  Skillful facilitation included a discussion summary each week. Convenient digital format allowed connecting with parents in other locations that was enriching.”
