The Selective Mutism Anxiety & Related Disorders Treatment Center
The comprehensive SMart Center is directed by Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum, who specializes in treating children and adults with selective mutism, social anxiety/shyness, social communication (pragmatic) disorder, and related challenges. Our holistic approach is rooted in treating the whole individual, not just his or her social communication issues. This philosophy led Dr. Shipon-Blum to develop the evidence-based Social Communication Anxiety Treatment (S-CAT)®, which has been used to successfully treat more than 5,000 individuals worldwide. The SMart Center is the only center in the world that implements Dr. Shipon-Blum’s S-CAT® Program. Visit the Smart Center to learn about our Treatment, Assessment, School Services, as well as our Education & Training services.
A 3-day intensive group treatment program to help your child with Selective Mutism build the social communication skills necessary for school, the real world, and at home. Using the evidence-based S-CAT® created by Selective Mutism expert, Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum, we will help your child cross the bridge to social communication!
