Selective Mutism: Understanding Assessment and Management of Children Who Do Not Speak

Selective Mutism is a psychiatric disorder in which children without significant language difficulties do not speak to adults and peers in social situations, typically school. The recent addition of Selective Mutism into the Anxiety Disorders category of DSM-5 mandates the need to develop best practice guidelines. This SIG brings together clinicians and researchers to discuss the changes in the classification and diagnostic criteria for Selective Mutism; review current research on assessment and treatment; and share commonly used approaches for assessment and treatment to develop consensus on best evidence-based practices.
