What people are saying about this workshop...
"Silence is the most powerful scream. Over the last few years, we have encountered more students with selective mutism. Annie has partnered with us and provided professional development that has had a profound impact on how we address our student needs. We didn't always recognize what a powerful form of communication silence is, and with her partnership, we are meeting the needs of these students to ensure they are making meaningful progress. Thanks for all you do Annie!" – Sonya R.
