Parents Often Have Questions Related to Selective Mutism
Frequently Asked Questions

Selective Mutism is

an under-researched, 

little known anxiety disorder that affect all ages.

SMF originated from a family in which all three children suffered from selective mutism. Due to a lack of awareness, no one was able to help these children while mother Poling Bork was desperately and helplessly watching her children suffer in silence.  With a sheer determination and a strong impulse to find a resolution, she embarked on a long, daunting, yet rewarding journey which resulted in the acquisition of the necessary knowledge to help her children overcome selective mutism.
