Unlocking the Mystery of Selective Mutism: Evidence-Based Intervention for Therapists and Educators

  • Courtyard by Marriott 7799 Conference Center Drive Brighton, MI, 48114 United States (map)

Selective Mutism is a childhood anxiety disorder characterized by an ‘inability’ to speak in various social settings.  These children are able to speak at home and in settings where they are comfortable.  However, this anxiety significantly impacts the ability of the child to participate in both social and academic activities in the school environment.
