Who: Children ages 3-7 with selective mutism, social anxiety, and/or extreme shyness.
What: A 6-week group therapy program to help your child with selective mutism, social anxiety, or shyness build the social comfort and communication skills needed in school, the real world, and home. This program is based on the evidence-based Social Communication Anxiety Treatment® (S-CAT®), developed by Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum. This group program will help your child cross the bridge to social communication and speech! Parents will also learn strategies that they can use in everyday life.
