Selective Mutism, Intervention, Guide, School, Professionals


Selective Mutism is an uncommon and debilitating anxiety disorder. Because of its scarcity, finding a succinct, implementable intervention within the school setting is often difficult for school-based professionals. School may be the best place to implement an intervention as often the symptoms of Selective Mutism are most prevalent in the school setting. This project examines the Selective Mutism literature to create an intervention guide that is both usable and manipulatable. School Psychologists, Speech Language Pathologists, general and special education teachers, and other school-based professionals can use this guide to piece together an intervention that is relevant to the student and the school setting. Various templates and forms are provided for use.
