Event description

Description

Overview

  • 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

Who this course is for?
