Selective Mutism (SM) is a severe social anxiety disorder of childhood characterized by talking comfortably in some settings with some people, but remaining mute in others. SM can be reduced and sometimes eliminated through a comprehensive treatment program utilizing systematic exposure therapy.
This product is designed to help teachers properly respond to and accommodate a child with Selective Mutism in the classroom. Although it targets teachers, it also includes pages for treatment professionals (who may be a school counselor, psychologist, social worker, or speech therapist) to help them data-monitor and write 504 Plans or IEPs. Parents will benefit from the information on preparing their son or daughter for school and preparing for school meetings.
This is not a comprehensive therapy program for the treatment of Selective Mutism, but rather useful supplements for helping children with SM in the school setting. Do you have more questions? Please email me. I am a Colorado Coordinator for the Selective Mutism Group of the Child Anxiety Network.
(As of 16 April 2014 I have added a template of a letter from the child to his/her teachers explaining Selective Mutism and suggesting things the teacher can do to make the child more comfortable in the classroom setting.)
