Product description

Product Description

An eye-opening and enlightening collection of stories from people living with Selective Mutism (SM), this book provides a much-needed platform for people with SM to share experiences of the condition in their own words.

Exploring all aspects of SM, from symptoms and diagnostic criteria, to triggers and the consequences of being psychologically unable to speak, the stories in this book dispel the myths around this often misunderstood condition. Far from refusing to talk, or choosing not to, the contributors offer genuine insights into why they simply cannot speak in certain situations or in front of certain people. Children, teens and adults from the UK and US share experiences of feeling isolated, struggling at school, and finding ways to communicate. Letting people with SM know that they are not alone with the condition, the book will also help family, friends and professionals to understand what it is like to live with SM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful to understand first-hand experiences 2 December 2016

I purchased this book to help me better understand what people with Selective Mutism (SM) experience, because my now 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with SM at age 4. Because SM isn't as prevalent as other mental health diagnoses, there aren't as many resources, including people to talk to, to learn from and provide support. Incidentally, I am also a Licensed Professional Counselor. I've purchased most of the resources available on Selective Mutism. This one is different- not better or worse, but different. I like the unique perspective it offers.
