Watch this video to see what the course includes

This short course on Selective Mutism is specifically geared towards friends & family!


This course covers what parents have been telling us at Confident Children, for a decade, about what they wish friends and family understood about SM & about their child:

- Understanding what Selective Mutism is

- Key points about Selective Mutism and common misconceptions

- Things not to do

- How to help the child to feel more comfortable around you

-How to help the child to start talking to you

This is a clear, concise (it takes less than an hour to complete!) and effective course to show to friends and family to help them to understand the child with Selective Mutism that they know. As the course can be watched over and over, you can show it to multiple friends and family members. You could even invite friends and family over to watch the course all together and have an evening learning about SM and your child.

With this course, you will have a solution at your fingertips to help friends and family easily and quickly understand what Selective Mutism is, and how to create the right environment for your child.

Please note that purchasing this course provides a license for use for friends and family of one specific child or siblings. The licence covers individual families rather than classes.
