School can be difficult and challenging for kids with selective mutism. Parents can help make sure that their children are comfortable at school through the following tips:
- Inform the teacher about your child’s condition. This way, the teacher can put more focus on your child.
- Talk with the staff about a 504 plan which your child is eligible for.
- Set up play dates with peers, one student at a time. This will help ease your child into socializing with others.
