My 4 year daughter has been severely shy since infancy and experiences a lot anxiety in social situations. I have been googling severely shy toddler/preschooler and stumbled upon selective mutism.
We are talking to her pediatrician next week at her 4-yr checkup. She's been in preschool since last September and has not spoken to anyone yet (teacher or students). She is starting to interact now that she goes 5 days per week, but no speaking. I'm using the Internet as a means to get educated on possibilities. Not trying to diagnose her myself.
