    I am kindergarten teacher of a student with selective mutism. I have no experience supporting a student with selective mutism and was hoping you could recommend professional readings I could undertake to extend my knowledge and improve my teaching practice to best support the student.

    There are a few options for you:

    1) A good resource is the ‘Selective Mutism Resource Manual’ by Wintgens and Johnson

    2) Our clinic runs regular 3-hour evening seminars for teachers about how to support students with selective mutism at school – 

    3) Our previous seminars have been professionally video-recorded, and available to purchase on the website here:

    4) I would also encourage the student/family to engage with a psychologist so that they can receive treatment for the selective mutism. As part of that treatment the psychologist should support you with strategies for the classroom.
