Education, Graduate Studies

Po-Ling Bork, a doctoral candidate in Educational Studies at Brock, and Debra Harwood, an assistant professor in the Faculty of Education, will lead a workshop on selective mutism at the Early Childhood Community Development Centre on March 30.

About one in 140 school-age children suffer from selective mutism, a condition in which a child fears being heard or seen speaking in specific social settings.

Bork can speak about the condition not only as a research, but as a parent of a child diagnosed with selective mutism.
