Professional Service Providers and Resource Directory
The Selective Mutism Foundation, Inc. declares exemption from any responsibility and/or liability regarding quality of service received by all listed providers and resources. In addition, this shall not be interpreted as the Selective Mutism Foundation’s endorsement of listed providers/resources.
Due to expressed dissatisfaction of professionals’ lack of expertise and/or excessive treatment fees we have decided to discontinue additions to our Resource Directory. In our effort to reduce opportunistic behavior we will retain those individuals currently in the Directory since we have had prior contact with them. We still recommend that you contact local hospitals/universities local to you for possible assistance; feel free to educate professionals with information from our website.
