Selective Mutism

The child does not talk in certain settings

Sometimes a child does not speak in Gan. Adults often think that he is just shy and will out grow it. The truth is that if a child does not speak in Gan within a few days, he likely will not speak at school for a number of years, unless the underlying cause(s) are dealt with. Consult with an expert if the child does not begin speaking as other children do within a week. Call Shlomo at 052-711-3238 for more information.
