This introductory module covers a full understanding of the nature, causes and diagnosis of selective mutism (SM), assessment and how to use informal management strategies. The emphasis is on an inclusive 24/7 approach to promote well-being and participation. When applied consistently within family and educational settings, these techniques will enable some children to fully overcome their difficulty talking, while laying a firm foundation for more formal small-steps intervention programmes if indicated.
All professionals and support workers from educational, health and mental health backgrounds. Parents welcome too!
