    I am a teacher and am keen to help my student with selective mutism but I worry about finding the time to implement a program. What suggestions do you have?

    Our treatment program is fairly intensive, as this is what is needed for selective mutism to resolve. We often invite principals/deputy principals and other support staff to sit in on the phone consultations that you have with us, and we can assist with writing letters to support applications for funding. If the special needs teacher and/or school counsellor are also involved in consultations with the Clinic, this can provide you with additional support in terms of the day to day implementation. However, it is important to note that the classroom teacher needs to play a primary role in our school program or else it will be difficult to generalise any gains in the child’s communication to the classroom setting.
