Virtual Support for Selective Mutism, Social Anxiety, & Extreme Shyness

If you live far from the SMart Center, please consider our training and coaching options via web-conference! 2/3 of our families are out-of-state! Many even travel from abroad to receive intensive S-CAT® treatment services and attend S-CAT® programs for Selective Mutism and related challenges.

We have two options for families who are interested in support but live at a distance:

  1. Make a one-time visit to the SMart Center for your initial intensive program (either individual and/or group, CommuniCamp™) then utilize online training via web-conferencing once every 3-6 weeks!
  2. Schedule an initial virtual training and coaching session with one of our SM experts so that we can train and coach parents, school professionals, and/or treating professionals on ways to help a specific child/student with SM.

Our virtual trainings are through WebEx. This platform is a user-friendly video conferencing system that allows our staff to see and hear families through the computer.  WebEx allows us to share documents such as handouts, diagrams, videos, as well as, goals/games during the session!

Recent parent comments about their web-based consult:
“We felt like we were right in the office!  Thank you Dr. E!  So great to meet you! Our child is thriving after only a few consults with you! This is amazing since our daughter was in therapy for 5 yrs prior to meeting you. This is a dream come true for us!”    -Michelle Kay

“We were not able to travel to the SMart Center but were thrilled to learn you offered Web consults. We were skeptical this may not be ideal for our son since he has a tough time opening up to people. Your down to earth personality (And showing off Mr. B, your pug) did wonders for Jason!  We are well on our way and Jason is super proud of himself!  Thank you for your dedication to our kids. We are eternally grateful”    -Heather Skipp
