October is Selective Mutism Awareness month

Have a silent - not merely quiet, but *silent* - student in your class this year? One who cannot look you in the eye, or speak above a whisper (if at all)?

Your student may suffer from a social anxiety disorder called Selective Mutism (SM).

Please take a moment to read about my experience teaching a middle school student with undiagnosed SM.

For more complete information about SM, visit the websit of the Selective Mutism Group at
