Evaluating and treating children with selective mutism (SM) presents challenges. These children have the ability to speak but may not do so in social situations where they feel uncomfortable and are expected to speak. A substantial number of children with SM have speech-language deficits and vocal tension, affecting their ability to vocalize and verbalize. To determine a child’s actual communication abilities and plan appropriate treatment, it is important to conduct a comprehensive evaluation with expressive output. This webinar describes a validated evaluation procedure and treatment methods to improve vocal output, enhance meaningful verbalizations, and expand language in individuals with SM.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • identify a validated evaluation method and steps to assess speech, language, and voice in individuals with selective mutism
  • describe vocal control techniques to facilitate vocalization and verbalization in children with selective mutism
  • identify and describe three strategies to expand receptive and expressive language for children with selective mutism

Group registration note: A group registration entitles you to view this program one time, on one connection. Any number of people may watch and earn CE credit (ASHA CEUs/professional development hours). The person who will act as group leader should register on behalf of the group. The group leader will be able to play the webinar and distribute a link to group members so they can access handouts and the learning assessment to earn CE credit. The group leader needs to have, or create, a login to the ASHA website. The group registration option is a limited-time offer available for 1 year only.
