Maggie Johnson and Alison Wintgens, are very experienced in the field of Selective Mutism (SM) and this shines through in their short but comprehensive book... I found the "voice" of the book very powerful, giving a real insight into how a child or young person with SM may feel and what approaches are helpful and unhelpful for them. I would recommend this book both to professionals working with children and young people with SM, to share with them, their classmates, teachers and other adults in school, and also to the parents of children with SM.

As the parent of a 5-year-old boy with selective mutism (SM), I was really excited to read this book. Any explanation of this complicated condition and its emotional impact on the child and those caring for him or her is to be valued... Any book like this that a teacher can read in less than an hour is to be welcomed, to ensure that understanding and support can be given. Author: Juno Magazine
