WELCOME to the Selective Mutism Cen

Clinical Excellence Networks (CENs) have developed from the needs of individual clinicians to share information and developments within particular areas and settings within speech and language therapy. Supported by the RCSLT, they’re an essential and accessible channel for continuing professional development, producing and disseminating the evidence base.

The specialism covered in this CEN is Selective Mutism(SM). Selective mutism is defined as the ‘Consistent failure to speak in specific social situations in which there is an expectation for speaking (e.g. at school), despite speaking in other situations. DSM-5 (APA, 2013)

One of our aim is to share good practice in relation to the identification and management of selective mutism.
