The Selective Mutism Association (SMA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing information, resources and support to those impacted by a child with the anxiety disorder known as selective mutism.
Selective Mutism (SM) is best understood as a complex childhood anxiety disorder characterized by a child’s or adolescent’s inability to speak in one or more social settings (e.g., at school, in public places, with adults) despite being able to speak comfortably in other settings (e.g., at home with family).
• talk normally in settings where they feel comfortable
• have an actual fear of speaking when there is an expectation to talk
• can “freeze” due to anxiety Without intervention, over time this can lead to social difficulties and/or isolation.
SM can persist into adolescence and even adulthood if left untreated. However, with diagnosis at a young age, early intervention and effective treatment, the prognosis for children with SM is good.
Whether you are a parent of a child with SM, a teacher of a student with SM, a therapist with a SM patient, or anyone interested in learning more, SMA can help. We are the nation’s premier resource for SM information, providing a network of families and treating professionals around the world who uniquely understand the struggles of SM. Stop struggling alone. Start seeking information and new ideas today.

Babies affected with Turner Syndrome require a lifetime of specialized care beyond the pediatric setting. Obstacles often impede an early diagnosis for girls to receive critical health screenings and timely, life-altering, interventions. The Foundation’s advocacy efforts identify these gaps and give voice to leaders who can make a difference. The vision to improve the understanding of TS and to render support for women and children living with TS is made possible by advancing communications and inspiring relevant interest in this women’s health issue. Legislative advocacy, education, and research are cornerstone to improved outcomes.
