Thesis

An exploration of the characteristics of Selective Mutism and their applicability for the role of the Educational Psychologist.

The purpose of the research is to investigate whether the characteristics observed by Maggie Johnson, a speech and language therapist specialising in SM, over decades of work in this area are present within individuals with Selective Mutism (SM). The project also aims to examine if this checklist of characteristics could then be used to benefit Educational Psychologists’ (EPs) hypothesis building, when they are working with children and young people with these presenting needs in order to minimise the delay for intervention.
