With Understanding Comes Calm, LLC provides comprehensive consultation, education and advocacy training for PARENTS of twice exceptional (gifted with learning differences) children, EDUCATORS, CLINICIANS and 2e adults. Julie Skolnick, Founder, utilizes a unique process for parents to gain a deeper understanding of their twice exceptional children's strengths and struggles. She guides parents in learning about their own parenting patterns and family dynamics and teaches strategies to shift from REACTING to RESPONDING to their children. Julie serves as "quarterback" for parents to learn how to increase happiness and calm in the home, how to more effectively communicate and collaborate with school, extended family and others to bring out the best and raise self-confidence in their 2e children. For EDUCATORS, Julie provides training on what it means to be twice exceptional and best practices in the classroom for engagement, addressing underachievement and challenging behaviors, and creating connections. Julie mentors TWICE EXCEPTIONAL ADULTS, helping them understand lifelong challenges and helping them identify strengths and passions in order to find fulfillment personally and professionally. CLINICIANS look to Julie to help them understand complex client profiles and assist in communication with parents.
Young Scholars Academy helps neurodiverse students learn engaging content that aligns with their passions to ignite within them a love for learning. Unlike their current schools, we take a fun approach to education in which learning is built around what students actually care about, not what they “ought” to know.
We offer regular online programming that meets once a week and allows students to delve deeply into complex topics, receive tailored support/differentiation, develop Social-Emotional Learning skills as they connect with peers in our neurodiverse tribe, develop Executive Functioning skills that are cultivated in the context of our strength-based learning, and we HAVE A TON OF FUN WHILE WE'RE AT IT!
Some courses include: Speech and Debate: Powers of Persuasion, Young Entrepreneurs: From Dreaming to Doing, Young Writers: Storytelling Through Pixar, Young Biologists: Creatures of Habitats, 2e AP: AP US History, 2e AP: AP Government and Politics, Young and Thriving: Skills For Life Beyond High School, Young Investors: Crypto and Stock Sim, Talking Like TED: Public Speaking, and Mathlandia: A Quest-based Math Game.
While the course topics and fun teachers are ultimately what entice the kiddos, our parents enjoy having their students work with experts in the field that nest learning-to-learn skills within the content. In other words, our classes are about so much more than what the titles would suggest =)
