Synopsis: Selective Mutism Parent Consultation Group

Effectively managing your child's selective mutism (SM) involves living an exposure lifestyle in which you - the parent - play a key role facilitating "brave talking" exposures in your child’s daily life.  We know from experience that you can feel alone in this hard work, unsure in your new role, and in need of connection with other parents going through similar experiences.

This need for connection is especially necessary now with the coronavirus forcing communities to go indoors, leaving many of us with minimal social interactions with friends and loved ones.  Parents of kiddos with SM may feel at a loss of how to maintain progress with brave talking and continue to challenge their children to make further gains.  These sudden changes to our lifetsyle require us to be flexible and creative in treating SM, though it is doable!

These small, skills-based consultation groups will offer a space for parents to connect with other families during this challenging time and problem solve creative ways to target your child's SM.
