Selectively mute children are at a significant disadvantage personally, socially and educationally. This unique manual emphasises practical assessment and treatment and provides advice and information, filling a significant gap in the availability of suitable resources in this field.

  • Uses an approach based on behavioural principles and a hierarchy of stages of confident speaking originally conceived by Anthony Glassberg.
  • Summarises relevant literature and theory and provides detailed ideas on assessment and management.
  • Includes case examples, photocopiable material, and a discussion about progress, transfer and discharge.
  • Written for teachers, clinical and educational psychologists, speech language therapists, child psychiatrists and parents.

Review:

This excellent book provides a much needed practical manual the authors' extensive clinical experience and their warm enthusiasm with this group of children are reflected throughout the entire text, making the book a great pleasure to read. I fully recommend this resource manual. This book should be a must in every agency that happens to meet children with SM and their families. --European Child Adolescent Psychiatry
