Join Our Let's Talk 2e Community

Julie Skolnick, M.A., J.D. and Founder of With Understanding Comes Calm, LLC brings you the Let’s Talk 2e Community. This isn’t your typical support group. Our “Parent Empowerment Groups” yield growth and change through a mix of education on critical topics for understanding the twice exceptional profile, and community-based camaraderie with a global group of like-minded and like-situated parents.

what you get

Your Let's Talk 2e Community includes:

Virtual Parent Empowerment Group

We know it’s complex to parent gifted and twice exceptional children.

We also know, just like our kids, parents of 2e children have a hard time finding peers who ‘get it.’

Wouldn’t you love to sit down with a fellow parent who lives a similar life as you? 

The Let’s Talk 2e Parent Empowerment Group brings together parents from all over the world for six awesome weeks where we:

  • Deeply dive into understanding the complexity of 2e
  • Connect over personal experiences – the good, the bad, the ugly
  • Provide and receive much needed support and fellowship

Committed to the idea that With Understanding Comes Calm, each six-week series includes Three 20-minute Live-Webinar Education Sessions led by Julie Skolnick, M.A., J.D., addressing specific issues that are typically challenging for parenting twice exceptional children.

Three 60-minute sessions are dedicated to building your community.

Parent Empowerment Groups meet via a unique Zoom room link.  When you sign up, you will choose which time block works best for you. To keep the meetings as intimate and personal as possible space is limited.  Sign up today to ensure your spot.

Each live-webinar education session includes a recording for community members. We always have time for questions and discussion following the education presentation.
