CommuniCamp™ for Teens

Sound On to hear Dr. E speak about our CommuniCamp™ for Teens program!

For tweens/teens 12-17 years old. (Some exceptions can be made for 18 and 19-year-olds upon clinician approval).

It can often be challenging for older children and teenagers with Selective Mutism and social anxiety to agree to participate in a group treatment program like CommuniCamp™. This is a widespread barrier to treatment, so rest assured you and your child are not alone!

CommuniCamp™ for Teens delivers the motivation for success and will address all aspects of life, including (but not limited to):

  • Starting and joining conversations.
  • Making friends.
  • Participating in class.
  • Job interview skills.
  • Text/email/social media.
  • Asking others for help.
  • Standing up for themselves.
  • Talking to strangers (like servers) without anxiety.
  • Initiating conversations
  • Building self-confidence.
  • Understanding themselves.

There is no restriction based on a teen’s social communication level (i.e., Camper’s communication levels range from shut-down and non-communicative, to nonverbal and somewhat communicative, to verbal).

Based on the SMart Center’s 20+ years of experience treating Selective Mutism using Social Communication Anxiety Treatment® (S-CAT®), the evidence-based treatment approach created by world-renowned Selective Mutism expert, Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum, we will help your tween or teen build the social communication skills necessary for school, the real world, and at home.
