CHOOSING A HEALTHCARE PROVIDER

Here are some helpful questions to ask a professional when choosing a healthcare provider for your child.

  • Have you ever heard of Selective Mutism (SM)?
  • What is your understanding of the disorder?
  • What do you believe has caused Selective Mutism?
  • Have you ever treated a child with Selective Mutism?
  • Can you describe your success rate?
  • What are your treatment modalities?
  • Can you describe this in layman’s terms?
  • What is the parent’s role in treatment of Selective Mutism?
  • May I see your credentials, certification/license?
