Westchester Anxiety Treatment is pleased to announce the expansion of our Selective Mutism “Club Confidence” Treatment Program!
What is Selective Mutism?
Selective Mutism (SM) is an anxiety disorder characterized by an individual’s inability to speak in select social settings, despite being able to speak comfortably in other settings. Children with SM may be described as “chatterboxes” at home, but they have limited speaking in certain settings or with certain people. SM interferes with daily functioning, social development and educational achievement.
What Services Do We Offer?
In addition to regular, weekly sessions, we also offer:
- A monthly 90-minute SM “playgroup”
- Winter and Summer 4-day intensive programs
- Customized programs
- Didactic workshops, training opportunities and consultation for teachers, school personnel and other clinicians
