PIRES, Thereza Sophia Jácome et al. Reflections of school mediation for a child with selective mutism. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.104, pp. 180-188. ISSN 0103-8486.

The present work presents the questions related to the processes of social interaction in the school environment of a child with selective mutism, describing the steps of development reached in face of the interaction process. For such, we describe the characteristics pertinent to Selective Mutism (SM) that is defined as an inability in oral communication as a function of social anxiety, even though it has the capacity for expression. The research approaches the report of a teacher who welcomed in her class a female student diagnosed with SM for a period of 3 years. The data were obtained through the application of a semi-structured questionnaire and were analyzed based on research carried out on the selective mutism and the process of social interaction. The teacher's mediation allows the student to develop his / her communicative abilities, when using approaches that emphasize the comprehension of the subject, respecting its limits and identified strategies to stimulate the linguistic, cognitive and social competences.
