The Lab School


It is important for Julie Skolnick, M.A., J.D. and With Understanding Comes Calm, LLC to sponsor SENIA because of the alignment of our missions.

With Understanding Comes Calm seeks to empower parents, educators, clinicians and adults through education, strategies and advocacy training in order to bring out the best and raise self confidence in twice exceptional (gifted with a learning difference) people. Our two organizations celebrate difference through a strength based approach. It makes sense to widen the SENIA reach to the twice exceptional world.

In-person and virtual consulting for 2e adults and parents, training for teachers
Julie Skolnick, M.A., J.D. guides and mentors parents and 2e adults to understand challenges and implement solutions unique to their situation through one-on-one consulting. She also trains teachers to better understand and provide strengths-based support for their 2e learners. Looking for a speaker for your parent and/or educator event?

Community support and on-demand conferences for parents, educators, 2e adults and clinicians
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.

Let’s Talk 2e Conferences host fellow thought leaders in presenting research-based presentations on issues affecting the twice-exceptional population. Parents, educators, clinicians, and 2e Adults are empowered to implement strategies in their homes, classrooms and with clients. Join us for a conference, not just a conversation.
