Some children remain silent in public. For example, they may not be able to speak in school. When children are quiet in certain situations while they can speak well in other situations, they may suffer from a disorder called Selective Mutism.
There are many myths and misconceptions about children who do not speak at school, and therefore Selective Mutism is frequently not recognized and treated early on. Children are often supported in ways that might work if these misconceptions were true, but often backfire for children who suffer from Selective Mutism. Yet with the right approach from parents and school, children suffering from Selective Mutism can overcome their challenges.
During this coffee morning, we zoom in on what Selective Mutism is, and what it is not. We will focus on how you, as parents, caregivers and educators, can support children in your care who remain silent and when professional support is indicated.
