Julie is amazing! I don’t know what I would’ve done without her help when I first discovered my son was twice exceptional. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides guidance to support 2E kids and their families.
Julie has supported our family in so many ways, from expert and honest advice to comprehensive access to resources, education and a community. She is great!
Julie is the most knowledgeable, generous, accessible expert in all things 2e. Her compassion has no bounds. No matter where you are in the world, she’s available to you. I couldn’t have higher praise for With Understanding Comes Calm.
I attended the first adult 2e empowerment group run by Julie and With Understanding Comes Calm - really amazing experience connecting with similar 2e people from around the world. These sessions highlighted common strengths and challenges faced by adult 2e people, whether diagnosed early or late. We're not alone, there's a way through together. This was hugely eye opening.
Julie is a fabulous educator and has helped our family immensely in parenting our 2e child. The best part is that my husband and I were able to hear the same information and be a team in advocating for our son.
There are not enough amazing words to describe Julie and her work/mission. Her passion and expertise in really offering solutions and support for families with gifted children is superb. Julie is a thought leader and an amazing resource, not only for families but for anyone wanting to grow and understand more fully the impact the many faces of gifted. She has made tremendous difference in the people I have referred to her and she has also freely shared her knowledge and insights with me! Thank you Julie for being a light to so many.
Julie's resources and expertise are top-notch and extremely helpful! Highly recommend for gifted and twice exceptional students and adults!
Julie's insight into our daughter was astounding. She helped us see the situation and behaviors in a completely different light. She lifted us up out of what was a pretty dark place and now we're hopeful, informed and have an action plan in place. We couldn't have asked for more.
Julie and her team are a leading force in the 2e space. I am so grateful to be able to share their vast resources and education tools with the population I serve!
The resources and articles were eye-opening for me and gave me such a better understanding of my daughter. I signed up for the 3 one-on-one sessions and being able to talk directly with Julie and bring up and discuss real-life scenarios was a huge help in not only understanding my daughter even more but understanding what I needed to do differently as well.
Congratulations on your special day today with lots of special celebrations. Your passion and expertise are extremely valuable for thousands of parents, 2e adults and education professionals. Keep playing for decades to come!!!
I highly recommend having Mrs. Julie Skolnick as an advocate for your child and family! I am so thankful and grateful for her expertise. We are very fortunate to have her services as a part of our tae kwon do program. She has been absolutely incredible in helping me and my staff in understanding a child’s behavior, creating and implementing strategies that greatly helped our program grow. Julie is a patient, kind, and caring individual who practices positive communication skills in all interactions with others. Julie will be a passionate advocate and an exceptional source of support and guidance for you and your child.
In our many conversations over the years, both privately and in my role in youth programming at our synagogue, Julie has helped immeasurably with her combination of concrete strategies and empathy. One of the gifts and the challenges of precocious kids is the emotional intensity that they bring – and evoke. Julie’s constructive suggestions, and ability to reframe challenging moments in a way that leaves both kids and adults alike with greater self awareness and understanding, have been invaluable.
Love learning from Julie (and we share almost the same birthday, Pisces pal, I am 2/29!)
Julie is the perfect support for both parents and teachers. As a teacher, she has helped me understand individual behaviors and how I could support my students better in the classroom. As a parent, she has guided me to a deeper understanding of my own children’s needs and how I can best help them to feel successful in life. She doesn’t claim to have the “magic bullet;” she helps you problem solve and research possible causes and solutions. I am so grateful for Julie’s contribution to both my parenting and teaching skills. She really “gets” kids and can also empathize with teachers and parents. She is a most valuable resource
Julie gets it and cares so much about you and your children. I find myself telling people about her several times a month.
I can’t think of a more passionate advocate for children and families than Julie Skolnick! Understanding the nuances of children’s profiles in the area of gifted education is Julie’s strength. Her ability to embrace individual differences, understand, strategize and advocate for children, as well as suggest creative ideas for implementation is her aptitude
