What's in a name, we finally found out what it was.

By accident we stumbled upon some information on Selective Mutism. It described a child who is happy to talk at home, but is unable to speak in other situations. This definitely needed some further enquiry. This is the link we first found: Selective Mutism: when there's more it than being shy!

So the journey begun, we got a referral to the paediatrician. We found out there was at least a four month wait for her. Next I started calling everyone I could think of, PMH (speech pathology and psychology), education department, autism network (it sometimes presents together), speech pathologists etc.. I rang 8 of the 10 psychologist and slowly but surely they said no one by one. Then the last one, finally said yes. What a breakthrough. Now the hard work really begins!
