GROUP FOR CHILDREN WITH SELECTIVE MUTISM: SUMMER MEETINGS

 

 

Dear Parents: I am planning to hold a group for children with SM (similar age) for a few days during the month of June, and then in August as well (before school starts).

 

So, please, can you let me know if you would like to participate in the group meetings? As opposed to a “camp” where the child would stay the whole or half day, this module is for a couple of hours each day, and for three or four (depending on how many children we have) days in one week. So, it would be in the morning or afternoon, and a very small group to begin with. 

 

Please, indicate:

 

1. If you are interested

2. The price: Please, call for further information on the prices as it will depend on the number of children per group. 

3. The meetings will be June 12, 13, 14; June 19, 20, 21, August 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16. 

 

Please, indicate whether you would like to attend. 

 

During the August meetings we will work on preparation for school, and with the proper arrangements, I will also work with your child’s school to help with the beginning of the school year. 

 

I would need a commitment from parents for each session to give courtesy to other parents for making the arrangements for the sessions. We will have outside of the office activities (in the Coral Springs area) when you will provide the transportation to your children as we will go, for instance, to the Yogurt Place, etc. 

 

You are welcome to call or write if you have any questions. Because I will be having a small group for each age, I will warrant “first come, first serve” for parents to call and enroll their children. 

 

Thank you very much, and I am looking forward to having the SM Meetings for the Children.

 

I will also see the parents once for a parenting meeting to support them with the changes that will happen with the groups. 

 

Do not hesitate to call or write if you have any other questions. Sincerely, Vera Joffe, Ph.D. ABPP, Board Certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, Licensed in FL, NY, PCIT Certified Therapist, www.verajoffe.com
