Review

I wish I'd had this book when I first started out in teaching and I definitely would want to put a copy into the hands of every member of the support staff in any school.--The Word Pool

As the parent of a 5-year-old boy with selective mutism (SM), I was really excited to read this book. Any explanation of this complicated condition and its emotional impact on the child and those caring for him or her is to be valued... Any book like this that a teacher can read in less than an hour is to be welcomed, to ensure that understanding and support can be given.--Juno Magazine

This is a book that belongs in all schools and should be read by teachers as well as friends of children suffering from this debilitating condition.--Healthy Books

Maggie Johnson and Alison Wintgens offer very practical advice and application around how to support children with these difficulties.--eye

The book is designed to help children conquer their anxiety. It should also help other pupils understand the problems faced by those with selective mutism - and how pressure can make them feel even less confident about speaking. A great, pupil-friendly resource.--TES

These convey a great deal about Hannah and her SM with a gentle empathetic humour. I wish I'd had this book when I first started out in teaching and I definitely would want to put a copy into the hands of every member of the support staff in any school.--Red Reading Hub

This sensitive and inspired book will be an invaluable aid for children and adults alike.--Biddy Baxter, Honorary President of SMIRA (Selective Mutism Information and Research Association)

Can I Tell You About Selective Mutism? is loaded with practical school and home intervention strategies for helping the child with Selective Mutism. It's also a great overview of the internal world of a child with Selective Mutism, and provides a wonderful resource for "normalizing" their experience. I can't wait to read it with my patients!--Aimee Kotrba, PhD, clinical psychologist and board member of the Selective Mutism Group, USA

The insights and practical suggestions in this engaging book will be of great help to those around a child who is selectively mute and to many of the children themselves.--Tony Cline, Co-Director of the CPD Doctorate in Educational Psychology, University College London and Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Bedfordshire

This fictional presentation of the problems of Selective Mutism, from the point of view of an affected child, may prove helpful for selectively mute children and despondent and worried parents and teachers... After reading this book, those who would like to help selectively mute or even very shy children will be in a position to choose from the range of tried and tested strategies suggested by Hannah. These have been derived from the wide experience of the authors and the national support network SMIRA, and have been shown to produce good results.--Alice Sluckin OBE, Chair of SMIRA, Retired Senior Psychiatric Social Worker

Product Description

Meet Hannah - a young girl with selective mutism (SM). Hannah invites readers to learn about selective mutism from her perspective, helping them to understand what it is, what it feels like to have SM, and how they can help.

This illustrated book is packed with accessible information and will be an ideal introduction to selective mutism. It shows family, friends and teachers how they can support a child with the condition and is also a good place to start when encouraging children with SM to talk about how it affects them.
