Parent Modules   

Our Parent Modules are finished!  We revised and rewrote all of the modules, some for the third time, in order to make them easier for you to use in your own programs.  All modules are complete with links to resources available on the internet.  We hope that you can use what you find here!  Please attribute our materials to Project2Excel, and include attributions for all referenced online resources you choose to use.  Let us know how you use the modules by sending an email to

The modules are based on the SENG (Supporting Emotional Needs of the Gifted) parent group model,, and the first listed pre-reading for each module is a chapter from A Parent's Guide to Gifted Children, by Webb, J.T., Gore, J.L., Amend, E.R., DeVries, A.R. (2007).  Scottsdale, AZ:  Great Potential Press.
