Review

Finally, a book to dispel the myth that Selective Mutism is an exclusively childhood condition. My greatest hope is that this valuable contribution to the field will not only improve understanding of the nature and far-reaching effects of SM, but help mobilise Health Services to provide appropriate support for both children and adults. -- Maggie Johnson, FRCSLT, co-author of Can I Tell You About Selective Mutism? This must-read book educates about the emotional challenges of Selective Mutism experienced by all involved. From being bullied to overcoming obstacles, Sutton and Forrester expertly weave heartbreaking and uplifting moments through personal stories that read like journal entries. This is a resource that should be on all clinician's shelves. -- Joleen R. Fernald, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-CL, Selective Mutism Expert A fascinating and beautiful glance into the lives of individuals with Selective Mutism and those who love and support them. -- Aimee Kotrba, Ph.D., Author of Selective Mutism: An Assessment and Intervention Guide for Therapists, Educators, and Parents Selective Mutism in our own words in an excellent compilation of short extracts written by people living with the disorder. Carl Sutton's own personal experience creates a sensitive and enlightening undertone throughout the book, and the amalgamation of perspectives both from the individuals and their family members provides a holistic insight into the triggers, symptoms and consequences of having this communication anxiety disorder. -- Natasha Hallam, Specialist SLT, Small Talk SLT * Afasic News *

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.
