Dear Parents of children with Selective Mutism, Anxiety and other conditions. After so many weeks of Social Isolation and (for older children) attending school on Zoom, many parents feel discouraged about their children’s improvements and opportunities for continuing work with anxiety, Selective Mutism, and other symptoms. However, I would like to give you some clues and suggestions for some strategies for this time when we know for sure that your child’s physical participation in  school will not resume until next academic year. I am having a Zoom meeting this coming Thursday night at 8:00 Eastern Time. It is free of charge. In order for you to participate, you need to send me an email confirming and I will send you a link to Zoom. Note that the Zoom platform that I will use for this meeting is not HIPAA compliant, and I will not discuss any child in specific but give you general suggestions. As you know, if you would like to have a meeting to discuss your particular case, then we can schedule it separately. Looking forward to hearing from you.
