Speech Language Pathology
Opening Up About Selective Mutism

One of the major roles of this program is to provide quality staff development that facilitates service delivery to students who have communication disorders. Another key function is to provide quality training that will enable licensed speech pathologists to remain current in their knowledge and skills as well as obtain the continuing education hours required for annual licensure renewal. While most staff development activities coordinated by this program may be found in the Region 10 Special Education Staff Development On-Line Catalog, additional information may be made available through special flyers, brochures, and SLP supervisor listserv.

Important Session Information:

Presenter: Marva Mount, M,S/CCC-SLP

Audience: SLPs, SLPAs, Sped Teachers

Description: School-based clinicians across the nation are seeing an increasing number of students who exhibit symptoms of Selective Mutism.  While most children who are diagnosed with Selective Mutism have underlying anxiety disorders, they also find communicating with peers and/or adults in the educational environment frightening and painful.  The speech-language pathologist is often asked to consult on Selective Mutism cases as the school works to provide appropriate educational opportunities for academic success.  This course will focus on practical ways that the speech-language pathologist can assist with Selective Mutism cases for optimal outcomes for these students.

"This event is free to all Region 10 schools."
