Book on Selective Mutism for Kids: Understanding Katie

1st January, 2008

[Image: understandingkatie.jpg]Understanding Katie is a hands-on storybook written especially for children between the ages of 3-12 years of age who suffer from Selective Mutism and/or social phobia.

Selectively Mute/socially anxious children ‘cannot speak’ and feel afraid when they are in various social situations, such as school. This can be a very isolating feeling. Understanding Katie will help these children realize that they are not alone and there are others in this world who feel as they do. The goal for this book is to help Selectively Mute/socially anxious children identify with Katie’s feelings by reading about her trials and tribulations in ‘a day in the life of’ Katie. Children can color and draw on the illustrations as a means of expressing themselves and personalizing Katie. [Source:]
