NEW PROGRAM FOR OLDER CHILDREN AGES 8 - 12
Brave Buddies℠ is an intensive group behavioral treatment program designed to help children with selective mutism (SM) speak in school and other public places. This two-day intensive program is structured using a classroom-like setting, which provides children with many opportunities to practice what we call “brave talking.” Planned activities include a daily morning meeting, classroom visitors, a presentation, a field trip to order a cupcake or ice cream, and lots of group and partner projects. Additionally, older children will receive education about what anxiety is and learn tools to manage it.
