2015 Wrap Up & Exciting New Things

2015 was a big year for The Selectively Silent Child!

We reinvented The Selectively Silent Child. TSSC started in 1999 as monthly support group at the renowned Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, ON, Canada. Our first website went live in 2004. After a few years' hiatus to focus on our education, we officially launched our sparkly new site and mental health coaching business in 2015. Thank you for joining us! We're glad to be back.

We returned to our passion. Raising awareness and educating people about how to help kids manage anxiety (especially Selective Mutism) is what we truly love to do.

We attended the Selective Mutism Group's annual conference in Philadelphia this past October. It was our first time, but definitely not our last.

We started vlogging. YouTube videos are an amazing way to engage and educate, so we made our first one this December. Subscribe to our channel, and you'll never miss a new upload!

We launched our first product. The Selectively Silent Night is a set of informational videos about how to help anxious children thrive during the holiday season. (It's a steal at only $15, so get it now and be prepared for next Christmas before the price goes up!).

Looking Forward to 2016

We have so many exciting things planned for this year, including:

Periscope: We broadcast on Periscope for the first time yesterday! It was a great experience and we will definitely do it again soon. Follow us here. (For the uninitiated: Periscope is a free streaming app and website that lets you view content live and for 24 hours after). Be sure to join us next time!

Launch more products: We love helping you help your child. Having lived with Selective Mutism (Becca as an SM child and Lin as a parent of), we've been there and are ready to take your hand and help you through.

Blog: Watch this space for more free, timely and vital information about SM. In the meantime, check out our most recent blog posts: After We've Made Merry: Post- Holiday Stress Relief For Kids & 5 Ways To Raise SM Awareness All Year Long.
