MindMasters
Started in 2000, MindMasters is a program that gives adults who work with or live with children, short, proven activities to do with children to help them learn positive living skills. Adults teach children all sorts of skills - tying their shoes, reading a book, riding a bike, cooking a meal. These practical skills help children to learn to manage the workd. There are other skills that children need to learn too. How to relax in a dentist's chair. How to channel feeling of anger so no one gets hurt. How to focus on a task to get it done. How to keep upbeat when life seems hard. We all need these skills to excel at living, to make the most of opportunities life offers to us. The program was created by Dr. Terry Orlick with the assistance of graduate students at the University of Ottawa and feedback from children, social workers, nurses, teachers and counsellors who have been doing the activities with children and evaluating their success for years. These positive-living skills activities have been assembled in the Mindmasters program and are being made available through the Positive Living Skills for Children project. You will find that the activities are suitable in all sorts of settings, particularly with children aged 4 to 12. You will find the music that supports the teaching of positive-living skills here.

Selective Mutism Group ~ Childhood Anxiety Network
Do you know a child who can talk freely at home but appears frozen in other settings like at school or out in public? Do you know a child who seems so shy that they take a very long time to warm up in social situations, if at all? Does it seem out of the normal range of shyness you observe in other children? If so, you may know a child with Selective Mutism and you’ve come to the right place. Whether you are a parent of a child with SM, a teacher of a SM student, a therapist with a SM patient or anyone interested in learning more, SMG can help. We are the nation’s premier resource for SM information, providing a network of families and treating professionals across the world who uniquely understand the struggles of SM.
