We continue to offer services for Selective Mutism through telehealth sessions during physical distancing due to COVID-19. Online sessions allow for children to continue to work on brave talking in situations such as remote learning experiences and virtual playdates. Parent consultations and skills training are also available via telehealth sessions.
Our intensive CCC Kids Camp
will still be offered Summer 2020 with modifications so that all meetings will be held online. As we adapt to holding camp online we will continue to bring the creative efforts and effective practices that we have always provided!
We will have three tracks for camp:
Track 1: Child Group Track
Track 2: Parent Education Track
Track 3: Parent-Child Coaching Track
In the Child Group Track
, youth participate in daily video therapy groups that focus on building speech and social interaction through show and share, peer to peer activities, arts and crafts, movement, presentations, and virtual field trips. Parents are encouraged to be present for these groups to support and coach their child. The Parent Education Track
offers didactic training for parents in the use of evidence-based coaching skills for supporting their child with SM, including education on how to interact and advocate within the school setting and develop and implement treatment plans and exposure activities within the community. The Parent-Child Coaching Track
offers in the moment, individual support for parents in the use of coaching skills with their child during exposure work.
