Selective mutism workshop with Maggie Johnson

05/11/2020 - 09:30 to 13:00


Maggie Johnson is a specialist Speech & Language Therapist who is widely regarded as being one of the UK’s leading experts in selective mutism.

With an average of two children in every primary school having selective mutism (i.e. selectively silent), and recognising how important early assessment and intervention is for the outcomes for these children, Educational Psychologists have an important role in supporting schools to identify and meet these needs. After all, left unsupported, selective mutism can have a significant impact upon a child’s social, academic, and emotional development, and lead to greater mental health difficulties within adolescence and adulthood.

The sessions will be delivered through 2 x 3 hour webinars (05-06/11/20). In conjunction with the resource materials below, we will develop our:
o Psychological understanding of selective mutism;
o Knowledge of tools to assess selective mutism;
o Use of interventions for school aged children.

On this course, we will explore the nature and causes of selective mutism, differential diagnosis, theoretical frameworks and evidence-based intervention strategies. These will leave us with the skills and confidence in how to best support schools, families and children.

The workshops will be delivered through 2 x 3.25 hour interactive webinars.

The resource manual for this course is the Speechmark publication ‘The Selective Mutism Resource Manual’ second edition (2016) which participants are highly encouraged to purchase prior to the course. We have a 20% discount code (BSE20) which can be used at the Routledge website. Alternatively click here to purchase through Amazon.
