Selective Mutism S-CAT® Summer Strategies 102: Planning for a Progressive Summer
Summer has arrived! Download this webinar, hosted by Jennifer Brittingham, M.A., Lead Clinical Counselor at the SMart Center, and learn strategies based on Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum’s Social Communication Anxiety Treatment® (S-CAT®) to instill coping skills and maintain progression during the summer months. During this training session, Jennifer will discuss:
- How Selective Mutism presents differently for children and teens over the summer. For example, is your loved one a talkative or timid traveler? Jennifer teaches you tips to help both with comfort and communication.
- Guiding interaction with those your loved one might not be as comfortable with, e.g. new peers, friends and relatives and managing these folks’ expectations of your loved one.
- Managing expectations for speech during summer traveling, e.g. going on vacation (new & different environment).
- SMart Tips for Visiting Public Pools, Beaches, and Water Parks
