There are a number of options for support and help for teachers:
1) For families who are receiving treatment at the clinic, we provide ongoing consultations to the classroom teacher (usually one every 4 weeks) to help them to implement an intensive program to address the child’s selective mutism. These consultations are generally paid for by the family.
2) From time to time we run evening seminars for teachers and parents. Details about our upcoming seminars are here.
3) Where families are not linked in with treatment yet, teachers/schools are able to access phone consultations with one of our experienced clinical psychologists to discuss the child and our recommendations for school treatment. The cost of these are the same as our usual session cost plus GST. For details of our fees click here.
4) We have DVDs of previous seminars available to purchase through our website here or by calling our office on 0405 430 530. The most relevant DVD for teachers is of a 3-hour seminar called ‘Treatment of selective mutism in schools and preschools’. There is an equivalent DVD about treatment for selective mutism in high schools.
