The Selective Mutism Toolbox
Selective mutism presents a significant challenge to SLPs. Children with selective mutism are often slow to respond to treatment, and SLPs often feel ill-prepared to address their needs. This session will present a variety of intervention techniques – based on theory, research, and practice – that SLPs can use in collaboration with teachers, psychologists, and other professionals to treat the unique and multidimensional needs of individuals who have selective mutism.
You will be able to:
- use intervention techniques for selective mutism to target cognitive restructuring
- use intervention techniques based on behavior therapy principles to shape verbal and nonverbal behaviors
- account for sensory and motor characteristics when designing interventions
