'The Selective Mutism Conference' 
Presented by Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum

Understanding and Treating Selective Mutism
                 Development of School-based Accommodations/interventions  (504 Plans & IEP's)

  

Selective Mutism is NOT rare, yet few understand. Children/teens are often overlooked, misdiagnosed or symptoms are misinterpreted.

As a result, those affected by SM suffer in silence as the world goes on around them.  They suffer from a social and emotional standpoint and some have difficulty in school. 

As children age, 'mute' behavior becomes increasingly more conditioned causing greater social isolation and avoidance.

Truth is, there is NO reason for a child or teen to remain socially isolated and/or MUTE and minimally communicative.   

Join parents, treating professionals, educators and older teens/adults who are touched by SM for a ONE day Selective Mutism Conference in one of the cities listed above!

Understanding children/teens with SM, knowing how to HELP them at home, in the real world and in school enables for the building of coping skills and to become successful social and verbal communicators.
