Selective Mutism

Moncton, Canada

#1 Apr 2, 2008
I am trying to see if there is a demand for a Support Group for Parents of Selectively Mute Children in New Brunswick. Selective Mutism is a rare anxiety disorder that appears in children, usually before the age of 5. They are able to speak in some situations (at home), but not in others (School or daycare). These children are sometimes labeled as shy and go through their early life suffering in silence. Please contact us if you are (or know) a parent of a Selectively Mute child. It makes a difference when you can speak to another parent.

My child hasn't been officially diagnosed with selective mutism, but she's shown every sign of it since I can remember. It seemed to start becoming more apparent in grade 3 and she's now in grade five. She is able to speak a little with prompting; there's a temporary behaviour interventionist in class and she has been prompting her to raise her hand. I would love to make contact with other parents, especially those who have children around my daughter's age.
