We Understand

We Understand your extraordinary child. The Social Mind Center will develop a plan to equip your child with the tools to acquire social, emotional, and academic success.

What we believe:

  • We believe that language is what connects us to the world and others. We believe that the limitations of your language are the limits of your world (Ludwig Wittgenstein).
  • We believe every child is more than a diagnosis and a sum of their weaknesses.
