Why Doesn't Alice Talk at School?

Why doesn't Alice talk at school?" is a beautifully illustrated book that can be read to peers to help them to understand selective mutism. The book starts with a section for adults, and the story for children follows. Reading this book creates a space for adults to have a conversation with peers about selective mutism, to answer their questions, and to explain in a child-friendly way how they can support their friend. Children with selective mutism are often fearful of how peers would respond if they were to talk. Naturally, it is a very exciting moment when a child speaks for the first time; however, making a fuss may halt the child's ability to continue to use their voice. This book can be used as a tool to help peers to understand selective mutism, and to explain important messages which will help to create a supportive class environment for the child with selective mutism.About the AuthorLucy Nathanson is a child therapist and founder of Confident Children.
