• 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. Libby is a multi-award winning SLT and works extensively with children and young people with SM from across the UK and Natasha Dale a leading national advocate for SM
