If a kid in the classroom is experiencing difficulty speaking with others, most school employees and families are aware of it by now. At the beginning of the school year, most youngsters are more restrained and "shy." Most youngsters have had enough time to warm up and talk by December, though. This is not the case, however, for children who suffer from Selective Mutism (SM). Those with SM will maintain their reserved and apprehensive attitude.
Therefore, it is a popular time to attend a conference on how to handle social media in the school setting. SMRI sees this rise in participants as an opportunity to disseminate the word about our latest findings to a larger audience. Selective Mutism may be treated and cured more effectively if it is well understood.
