Summary "Selective mutism is a rare condition but it is important because selectively mute children are at a significant disadvantage personally and socially. It is also a greater barrier to learning, with the increased emphasis on verbalization within the school curriculum. More resources and attention are often directed towards the disruptive child.
This manual emphasizes practical assessment and treatment, advice and information. The approach is based on behavioural principles and a hierarchy of stages of confident speaking originally conceived by Anthony Glassberg. Starting with a summary of the literature and theory, it is then followed by ideas on assessment and management, with accompanying photocopiable material. Case examples and a discussion about progress, transfer and discharge are also included."--pub. desc.
