Guided S-CAT® Virtual Playdates & Get-Togethers

Join SMart Center counselors as they facilitate play time and get togethers from a distance using Dr. Shipon-Blum's S-CAT® strategies/interventions and the Social Communication Bridge® weekly through a variety of activities.
We have three groups:
Virtual Playdates for tots 3-5 yrs old
Virtual Playdates for children 6-9 yr olds
Virtual Get together's for tweens/teens 10-18 yr olds.

Registration is $40 per session, per child, and you can choose to participate in as many as you like.
The link to join the group will be emailed the morning of the group ensure that everyone who signed up recieves the link.

Please note that families who successfully crossed the Social Communication Bridge® followed up consistently so ongoing support is recommended for treatment success.

Your child/teen is not required to have a formal diagnosis of Selective Mutism to participate and learn from this group.

If you'd like to learn about SM and the evidence-based treatment we use at the SMart Center (S-CAT®), please considering watching Dr. E's 'What is Selective Mutism' free webinar. (share with teachers too!)

Email us if you have questions on groups or our evaluation/treatment and school services.

Join us on social media too!  Tips, Strategies, Articles, podcasts, research, success stories and more!
