Wherever you live – you can have access to the highest level of  guidance – pioneer SM therapist Ruth Perednik, who has helped thousands of children throughout the world overcome selective mutism. This treatment includes 10 one-on-one sessions with psychologist Ruth Perednik, who will guide parents, teachers, key workers, and sometimes the child or teen, to acquire and implement understanding and strategies enabling the child/teen to progress toward overcoming SM. 

In the initial session you will discuss your child’s background, how his/her  SM manifests, and you will plan treatment.  In the subsequent sessions you may include the teacher or school staff, to build a treatment plan in school for them, and sometimes a key-worker in the school is chosen to carry out interventions to move your child forward to improved social communication.
