SMRI has been dedicated to understanding and educating about Selective Mutism since we opened in 2014. Our goal is to provide insight into this all too often misunderstood anxiety disorder and educate along the way.

Dr. Elisa Shipon-Blum has over 18 years of experience in treating children and teens with Selective Mutism and is passionate about helping as many people as possible overcome their social communication difficulties.

We love our patients/research participants and welcome your feedback and suggestions. Use our Contact Us page to tell us what we’re doing right or what we can improve on.
