UNDERSTANDING SELECTIVE MUTISM
June 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Selective mutism is a childhood anxiety disorder characterized by a child’s inability to speak in one or more social settings (e.g., at school or in public places, with adults) despite being able to speak comfortably in other settings, such as at home with family. This condition is often first noticed by preschool or early primary classroom teachers and it can have a significant impact on the student’s ability to fully participate in classroom and school activities. Attend this workshop to gain a better understanding of this complex condition and learn resources and strategies which can be helpful in supporting the child in overcoming selective mutism.
