ABOUT: Some children and youth really struggle to ‘find their voice’ at school. As a school professional, you have likely worked with students who do not speak at school or who speak very little, and it can be challenging to know the best path forward. Fortunately, research shows that in most cases this condition is highly treatable and there is much that school professionals can do to help children become more successful speaking at school.
In this webinar you will learn practical strategies to help children with selective mutism to speak more comfortably in the school setting.
Specifically, we will discuss
the theoretical underpinnings of selective mutism;
strategies to help children warm up in new situations;
practical tools for facilitating speech;
a roadmap for increasing speech in different settings and situations at school.
Participants will leave feeling more empowered to support students who struggle to speak at school.
The webinar will end with time for Q&A.
