Social Sense Palm Beach, LLC is a multi-service therapeutic center for children (toddlers to teens) and families. We support children evidencing varied learning and developmental differences and mental health concerns.
As an evidence-based private practice in West Palm Beach, Florida, we offer social, emotional, behavioral, and educational support to our clients. Our services range from initial assessment, evaluation, and diagnosis to intervention and ongoing service.
Obstacles to a successful school or home life are often challenging and stressful for the entire family unit. Our priority is to integrate therapeutic services while never losing sight of the goals identified by the client.
Hayley, our founder, built and ran the resource room at a Palm Beach private school. This was where the idea of Social Sense Palm Beach was born. She learned that local schools are doing their best to provide comprehensive support to students and families but are restricted by the hours in a school day.
Our mission is to be a support system, resource, coach, mentor, problem-solver, and sounding board for children and families.
