This volume provides assessment, treatment information, case examples, easy-to-implement workbook sheets, and informative handouts concerning selective mutism, a disorder in which a person who is normally capable of speech does not speak in specific situations or to specific people. The author is an advocate of team treatment, where parents, schools, and mental health professionals work together to intervene with selective mutism. She provides intervention strategies for all team members, as well as a comprehensive treatment plan that can be individualized to any child. The techniques included emphasize a gradual, stepwise approach to increased speech, as well as fun and engaging activities that can be used at each step of treatment. Tips for engaging and motivating children and teens are included to improve treatment outcomes.
