One of the best ways to reach a child is through stories. In this beautifully illustrated book, Jo Levettâ€™s simple, touching tale tells the story through the eyes of a young child with selective mutism and perfectly captures her day-to-day conflict of uncertainty and optimism. Canâ€™t Talk? Want to Talk! provides a vehicle for parents, grandparents and teachers to open up a dialogue around selective mutism and start the process of reducing the crippling anxiety felt by children with this poorly understood communication difficulty. The accompanying advice sheets provide sound, straightforward advice for people who know the child.
