About Selective Mutism HELP
This podcast is for those that have someone in their life affected by Selective Mutism. Whether you are a parent of a child with Selective Mutism, a teacher with an SM student, or a medical professional working with an SM patient, this podcast will give you an inside look at what Selective Mutism is and how a child can be supported to help them overcome this anxiety disorder. As a mom of a child with SM, this podcast will be a way for me to help others on the same journey. I will share the ups and downs of our journey and hopefully help you avoid some detours along yours. New episodes will be released the 3rd Thursday of every month. I hope you join me! www.smhelp.org
There is so much that goes on physiologically when someone has Selective Mutism - there is a tightening the the throat, the inability to make eye contact, a frozen expression. And why is this? I believe it relates to the vagus nerve and the Polyvagal Theory. This podcast episode explores the PolyVagal Theory to help understand what may be happening when someone is unable to speak in certain situations.

Selective Mutism is not a well-known anxiety disorder. When people don't understand something, they may have a hard time believing in it.

In this episode, hear strategies that may help you educate your own family members about SM.
