When: Ongoing group on Tuesdays at 6pm, starting the first week of October 2017
 Weekly attendance is not required, but there must be a minimum of 3 children signed up each week for the group to run  Must RSVP by Sunday evening before group each week
Who: school aged children with Selective Mutism and their parents

Cost: $40 per meeting. Payment must be received before or at the time of the meeting. 
Already in treatment? Group peer practice is often one of the more challenging verbal tasks for kids with Selective Mutism and therefore practicing in a supportive environment can greatly supplement your existing treatment goals. 
Participants must be current or past patients at Thriving Minds.

If interested, please contact Lisa Wheeler at 810-225-3417 ext. 107  or to see if this is an appropriate opportunity for your child.  Space is limited so reserve your child’s spot soon!
