My daughter doesn't have it, but one of her friends does/did. Her friend, E, was in her kindergarten class and she used to tell me "E doesn't talk to anyone" or "E is REALLY quiet" When it came time to go into 1st grade, her mom invited us over for a playdate and asked if my daughter would be her "special friend" for that year at school. E would talk to one person, my daughter, so she asked if my daughter would relay any questions, comments, etc to the teacher/classroom peers. It worked well and they were in class together for 1st and 2nd grade. By 3rd grade (this year) E was more comfortable speaking, but she's still a quiet girl.
