Helping Your Child with Selective Mutism: Practical Steps to Overcome a Fear of Speaking, Angela E. McHolm and Charles E. Cunningham and Melanie K. Vanier
2 Helping Your Child with Selective Mutism: Practical Steps to Overcome a Fear of Speaking
Angela E. McHolm and Charles E. Cunningham and Melanie K. Vanier USA New Harbinger Publications 2005 157224416X / 9781572244160 2nd Edition Soft cover New Book 22.8 x 15.2 x 1.0 cm 
Often described as "social phobia's cousin" and misdiagnosed as autism, selective mutism is a debilitating fear of speaking in some situations experienced by some children. The disorder usually presents in children before the age of five, but it may not be recognized until the child starts school. When requested to speak, children with selective mutism often look down, blush, or otherwise express anxiety that disrupts their engagement with people and activities. Selective mutism is related to social anxiety and social phobia, and more than 90 percent of children with selective mutism also manifest symptoms of one of these problems. This book is the first available for parents of children with selective mutism. It offers a broad overview of the condition and reviews the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. The book details a plan you can use to coordinate professional treatment of your child's disorder. It also explains the steps you can take on your own to encourage your child to speak comfortably in school and in his or her peer group. All of the book's strategies employ a gradual, "stepladder" approach. The techniques gently encourage children to speak more, while at the same time helping them feel safe and supported. Angela E. McHolm, Ph.D., is director of the Selective Mutism Service at McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, ON. The Selective Mutism Service offers outpatient psychiatric consultation to families and professionals such as school personnel, speech and language pathologists, and mental health clinicians who support children with selective mutism. She is assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences in the Faculty of Health Sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton, ON.

This resource is designed for use by parents, caregivers, teachers and others working with children with Autism. It is hoped that the resource will provide an understanding of the importance of play skills, the development of play and how Autism impacts on a child's ability to play.

'The bottom line: Your life's outcome is solely up to you. If you can get out of bed in the morning, go to the bathroom, get dressed and nuke something in the microwave without any help, then you are capable of doing, achieving and handling just about anything that life can throw at you. You can do this. You can live up to your potential. And at your age, frankly, I expect you to.' Straight-talking, unpatronising, inspirational advice from bestselling author Dave Pelzer. Before he became a teenager, Pelzer was subjected to horrific physical and mental abuse from his mother. At the age of 12 he was rescued by his teachers and placed into foster care. During his teens the long road to recovery began and today Pelzer, now a father of a teenage son himself, spends much of his working life talking to young adults in schools and foster care centres. Pelzer's message is simple and powerful: identify problems, face them, think about where you want to be in life and never, ever give up on yourself.
