A number of resources are listed below that can help to build your knowledge about selective mutism and the recommended treatments.
These DVDs are of seminars presented by Dr Elizabeth Woodcock, Clinical Psychologist, and director of the Selective Mutism Clinic in Sydney. She is co-author of the chapter ‘Treatment Programmes for Children with Selective Mutism’ in the book ‘Innovations and Advances in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’ edited by D. Einstein (2007).
We run seminars about other various topics related to Selective Mutism at different times throughout the year.
ABOUT SELECTIVE MUTISM
Although Selective mutism usually becomes apparent around three years of age, the condition is often not diagnosed until
much later (e.g., early to mid primary school). The delayed referrals of children to appropriate services is often due to the
perception that the child will ‘grow out of it’ and eventually start talking.
The Selective Mutism Clinic in the media.
The Selective Mutism Clinic offers a consultation service to psychologists, speech therapists, school counsellors, guidance
officers, social workers and other professionals who work with children with selective mutism.
