Anna Biavati-Smith

Selective Mutism (older child)

My daughter saw Anna during P7 to try to prepare her for secondary school. Her speech was limited in and out of class and we ordered meals, went into shops for her and spoke for her if it looked like she was unable to answer a question someone asked her. Anna was able to guide us by showing us how to support her while still setting her challenges and we watched her achieve the goals she was set and grow in confidence.
Secondary school has not been easy but she has made friends, is verbally independent in all situations and now has a Saturday job where she has to engage with the public and deal with small children – things I would never have thought were possible when she was at primary school.
None of this would have been achievable without Anna’s support as we had tried a number of other approaches. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
