    Default Selective mutism

    Anyone dealt with selective mutism before (your child or through your field of work)? We're in the process of having DD1 diagnosed and just wanting to chat to people who know about it.

    My 12 year old has SM. We have had the diagnoses for 2 years. Not sure what I can help you with because I'm lost in regards to his future right now but happy to answer any questions you might have.

    I watched a doco the other night that featured a little girl who never spoke a single word at school, ever. At home she was fine and really happy and chatty. The program showed her treatment of sorts and she had a specialist attend school with her and through various measures and scenarios she eventually began to improve.

    Good luck with your DD.

    Thanks guys. Since I wrote my original post my DD has been diagnosed and receiving treatment through a specialist clinic in Sydney (we're in Perth) and has made amazing improvements. It's always 2 steps forward, 1 step back though.

    It was a 2 part series called ' My Child's Not Perfect'. It followed the lives of 10 children with different disorders etc and in episode 1 one of the stories was about a little girl called Katherine who they diagnosed with SM. However reading some of the comments just now when I looked the program up, some people disagree with the diagnosis and are of the opinion she had childhood separation anxiety.
