Abstract

Speech disorders can be affected by multifactorial causes, one of which is mutism. Mutism will interfere with one's communication process and hence will affect their social life. Mutism case does not only occur to children with special needs but also to children without disabilities. Therefore, proper intervention is required for those with mutism. ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) approach can be an alternative approach to treating students with mutism. This descriptive case study showed that ABA approach could improve the speaking skills of student with mutism. It is therefore suggested that ABA approach be integrated into school curriculum so as to help students with multifactorial disorders.
