“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.”

“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.”

“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!”

“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.”
