  11. I am 63 and
    have been afflicted by this condition since a young age,I struggle terribly with Language go over the meanings of words constantly but not much registers,it’s so frustrating I have resorted to alcohol in a heavy damaging way.I have been told the wiring in my brain is wrong,I am borderline Wernicks Korsakoff syndrome,I am on the autism spectrum maybe Asperger’s.You explain it very well in the 1960’s it should have been picked up,but everything seems geared towards children’s development.Sadly I think alcohol will destroy me.

  12. Hello, thank you for this article. My Son is 5.5. About 3 months ago he started to pronounce his S as as SH sound. He now says “Schtar in the schky” and “pleajshe” (instead of please). He has also started to add the -es onto the end of words again, so he says “bird-es” instead of “birds” even though he had been doing this correctly for years already. The SH sound I don’t ever remember him doing, his speech was previously clear.
    I was wondering if this is something you have seen before, and the possible reason this could have suddenly happened? He speaks like this nearly all the time now.
    Thank you.

  13. “This is an excellent, informative course for parents like me. A great starting point to understand a condition that is so often misunderstood. You can see the time and effort that has gone into this, and I would recommend this to any parent who needs support with SM. The fact that it is broken down into sections make it easy to navigate and find the information you need. A great online resource!”

  14. This is an impressive piece of work which is already so useful to us on a daily basis.
    My overall feedback is extremely positive for two main reasons:
    – I feel that watching videos is much easier, pleasant and understandable than reading a book
    – If I had already heard about most topics / tools, I did not know all of them and above all, I really appreciated having everything in one place with some structure around the different topics. I feel that I understand much better how each part is related to another.
    I noted the following positive points:
    – the 6-hour course was broken down into mini-videos which is much more convenient if you want to watch it into different sessions or if you want to re-focus on one specific topic later on
    – the duration of each video is available, you know how long it is going to last before you start it
    – Anna’s tone of voice was very calm and pleasant, she was speaking slowly and clearly, and the music behind was nice too, so nice to listen all along
    – videos integrate key messages written on screen and/or illustrating pictures, it makes the videos more dynamic
    – the addition of quizzes really help to better understand more complex topics such as CDI / VDI
    – the addition of pdf documents to complement videos to be able to print key messages or to ease the implementation of tools with the kid (ie bravery chart)
    – the addition of videos with different stakeholders such as Laura Newman adds a lot of value
    – the possibility to make steps appear “complete” to be able to visualize our progression
    – the fact that we are moved to the next video automatically once we press on the “complete” button is very convenient

  15. I can understand. Well, i had a mild variation of selective mutism. I couldn’t chat with my classmates at my schools from elementary to high school. I was a loner at school, being unable to make any friends as i grew up. I knew that i was different from others. I wished that i knew about selective mutism.
