Selective mutism training in Staffordshire

Time goes so fast so we're planning what we're going to do for October's selective mutism (SM) awareness month already.

We aim to blitz the local radio shows again with the lovely Natasha Dale who has become a brilliant ambassador for children and young people with SM, we'll have a local press campaign and a training day for parents and professionals.

If you know anyone who would benefit from the training, please let them know, places are limited.

The aims of the day are:
  • To recognise and diagnose SM
  • To fully understand the causes and maintaining factors
  • To relate the above to an appropriate prevention or management plan:

     - educating all key people involved with the child
     - creating the right environment at home and at school
     - talking to the children and their peers about SM
     - considering the need for a formal programme

     - formulating treatment targets

Friday 13th October 9.30am -3.00pm
Uttoxeter Fire Station, Cheadle Rd, Uttoxeter ST14 7BX

£85 to include lunch and refreshments



We'd love to see you!
