About Selective Mutism
Please take some time to explore the site and learn about Selective Mutism (often referred to as ‘SM’), which can have a distressing effect not only on those with the condition but also on their families.
What is Selective Mutism?
Selective Mutism (SM) is an anxiety disorder which prevents those affected from speaking in certain situations, such as at school or in public.
SMIRA’s team consists mainly of volunteers who all have knowledge of selective mutism, whether as parents, professionals or from their own personal experience.
A range of resources to consider for parents and carers or those involved in treating Selective Mutism.
