Selective Mutism is a childhood anxiety disorder in which a child is mute in certain social situations, but talks comfortably in others. It is a very complex disorder that usually occurs before the age of five. These children have the ability to talk, but become so paralyzed with fear in some social situations ( usually at school), that they cannot talk or interact.
I made these cards for my son to use in preschool and kindergarten as a way to communicate with his teacher.
There are 12 cards most with pictures, but some have text.
Thank you, drink, bathroom, feel sick, feel happy, feel mad, please, I'm done ( for when finished with work, I want to play with others, I have a question, I don't understand, I know the answer ( picture of raised hands).
These would be useful to print, laminate, and place on a metal ring. Child would only have to point to the picture.
If they are useful to you, please leave me a comment!
