Interested in consulting with the SMart Center’s expert clinicians about a specific individual or case?
Our S-CAT® specialists can consult with support families, school personnel, or treating professionals with a child/student/adolescent with social communication challenges due to selective mutism, social anxiety, social communication (pragmatic) disorder, or extreme shyness who is not currently a patient with the SMart Center. This is an opportunity for an open dialogue between parent/school personnel/treating professional and our clinician to promote understanding of the child/teen’s social communication challenges and typically suggested strategies according to Dr. Shipon-Blum’s S-CAT® treatment principles for increased social communication. We can discuss 504 or IEP plans during these consultations as well. This question and answer style session
cannot replace an evaluation and treatment, as there is no patient evaluation nor patient relationship with the clinician. Consequently, general guidance will be provided. Email us at SMartCenter@SelectiveMutismCenter.org to receive more information.
