We are proud to announce that SMF is offering ongoing group coaching services. This is an opportunity for parents to connect with one another under the guidance of an SM expert.


The group coaching sessions are personally moderated by Dr. Bork and run every Saturday.


A min donation of US$10/session will go toward the operating cost to help run this nonprofit.


You’re welcome to join in any Saturday. Please contact us by Friday to reserve a spot (feel free to book weeks in advance!). Note that each session is limited to a max. of 6 parents, so it’ll be on a first come, first served basis. 


***Note: If our time zone (EST: Toronto/New York City) doesn’t for you, please indicate in your email and we will try our best to accommodate.


*** IMPORTANT: Due to our Virtual Reality study, the weekly group coaching is canceled on March 25th, April 1st and April 15th. Feel free to sign up any other Saturdays (or any private coaching) in advance. Thanks for your understanding!**********

Selective Mutism Foundation 2nd Annual Conference


SMF is very excited to host the 2nd annual conference on

February 17th to 19th, 2023 in sunny Florida USA.


There are 2 ways to attend the conference: in-person and virtual. All registrants will receive a copy of the recording at no charge!


We are honored to be partnered with Joleen R. Fernald Pediatric Therapy Services and SMHELP to be our partners for this. This conference is unlike any others, because we are featuring researchers and practitioners who have personally impacted by SM! It’s about time to hear from SM experts who have truly been “in your shoes” to share what works, and what doesn’t!


Two ways to save on the registration cost:

1) If you’ve joined our nonprofit’s FB group, use the code SMF10 to save 10% for the registration.

2) If you have purchased the book Vocal please contact us with a photo of the book in your hand to receive a HUGE discount for the conference!
