Your child may be ‘twice exceptional’ or 2e:

2e kids are highly intelligent or advanced in certain areas (one exception to the norm) and at the same time, behind in certain areas like focus, learning, social/emotional or behavior (the second exception to the norm).

The problem is not your child or YOU!  The problem is:

  • Most school and medical systems focus solely on remediating weaknesses when, in reality, what really works is developing strengths, interests and talents, in addition to skill building challenge areas.
  • Most teachers receive zero training in working with 2e kids and don’t know how to personalize their learning or accommodate the unique way their brains learn.
  • Parents feel alone, scared and frustrated by the lack of services, support and information for their bright and quirky kids.

Let’s find your
bright child’s path to flow & thriving, even with ADHD, autism and/or learning differences

The truth is, the way your child’s brain is wired is, in many ways, an ADVANTAGE.
Our world desperately needs out-of-the-box thinkers with unique problem-solving abilities. Your child just needs the right supports in place to develop their expertise. Learn how!

-Julie, 2019 Summit

"This summit is the best online summit I have had the pleasure to attend. The caliber of expertise is amazing. The content so specific and spot on. I am a teacher of young gifted children. I am fortunate enough to teach at a progressive school who practices much of what has been said here. How wonderful to have such a rich resource for anyone who works with these amazing kids!"
