Do you have a child with SM or do you work with a child with SM? If so this course is for you


• This introductory one-day course provides an overview of the nature, causes, diagnosis and assessment of selective mutism (SM)based on the work of Maggie Johnson and Alison Wintgens. • You'll also learn how to use informal management strategies. • 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.

This course is run by Libby Hill from Small Talk Speech and Language Therapy and Natasha Dale, who both have extensive experience of SM
