Join Our Let's Talk 2e! Community

We launched the Let’s Talk 2e! membership when Covid-19 hit with the goal of bringing together parents and educators of twice exceptional kids for information and support. Parenting and teaching 2e kids comes with unique challenges and profound intensity in typical times. As we watched the world forever change, we saw the need to come together as a community and be there for one another.

Let's Talk 2e membership includes:

Weekly Q&A Private Emails

You receive a weekly Monday email including important member submitted questions and detailed answers from 2e expert, Julie Skolnick. Julie takes the time to provide suggestions, perspective and strategies giving individual attention to each query. Members have access to an archive of these emails.

Virtual Parent Empowerment Group

Fellow parents of 2e children come together in a safe and confidential virtual setting to discuss unique challenges gifted and twice exceptional children of all ages bring to families. You will meet and interact with like-situated parents from around the world. Through education and “aha! moments” we share laughter, tears and most of all understanding of unique parenting situations. This group is for everyone! Participants are kind and as one member shared, “it’s so nice to talk to people who understand!”

Webinar: Cycle for Success: Parenting & Teaching Twice Exceptional Children

In this keynote address from 2 Days of 2e Virtual Conference, Julie takes you on a deep dive into what it means to be gifted and twice exceptional. The webinar includes an assessment of characteristics, provides detailed strategies and advocacy tools for parents and teachers of 2e children.

Monthly Newsletter

Referred to as “mandatory reading” by professionals and educators for their teams, and anxiously awaited by parents and 2e adults, Gifted & Distractible free monthly newsletter includes Julie’s monthly blog, articles, events and resources for the 2e community.

Virtual Parent Empowerment Group

Duration: 45 Minutes per week

Parenting Gifted and 2e Children is often challenging on many levels. You may feel isolated as friends and family don’t understand your situation or your child’s needs. You feel judged as your child’s behavior and your parenting style is questioned by people around you, yourself or your spouse. Our Parent Empowerment Group provides support, information and guidance for the challenges inherent to parenting a gifted or 2e child.

Parents have an opportunity to openly and comfortably share their experiences, receive support, guidance and advice. Participants will develop parenting skills to nurture the self-concept and emotional development of talented children and their families.

Join fellow parents in a safe and confidential setting to discuss unique challenges gifted and 2e children bring to families. If you don’t want to show yourself on camera, no problem! If you want to share thoughts via chat, okay! 

Topics we cover during our group:

  • What it means to be Twice Exceptional
  • Structuring Up Your Day
  • Discipline vs. Punishment
  • Communication and Social Emotional Engagement
  • Executive Functioning, Chores and Organization
  • Perfectionism
  • Building Community and Addressing Loneliness
  • Advocacy
  • Overexcitabilities/ Intensities,
  • Motivation
  • School Avoidance
  • Misdiagnosis

Designed to bring parents together so they can share with and support one another, the group enjoys fluid conversation and thoughtful reflection on the parenting experience.
