Hi, I am wanting to chat to mothers of children with selective Mutism. My daughter who is now 5 has what we think is selective mutism. She started Kindy last year and would not talk to anyone except her cousin. They said oh she is very shy. Which we thought she was. Then at the end of they year our kindy gives the school a transition letter and it had Charlotte was a selective mute. I thought to myself " thats a clever way to put it" Then I googled it and it is actually a real thing. She started school this year still not talking to anyone and they are working with her to build a trust with her. She comes home and she is the most happy, talkative little girl. It breaks my heart everyday she goes to school and is unable to have enough confidence to talk and laugh and have fun with all the other kids.
