My son is soon to be 6 years old. he has been diagnosed with select mut-ism and anxiety. he began 1st grade this year and is also in a new school. i have seen signs of him opening up in such ways as talking to people he use to refuse to talk to, and also in stores/restaurants he will say thank you or hi little things. but i school, where i need him to open up, he doesn't talk. the teacher and i have written notes back and forth and she looked at his files from his old school she seems to be willing to work with him and i and she understands but i don't know what to do to get him to talk while at school. i'm afraid it is going to be bad i the long run. don't get me wrong he does all his work and is a good student he just wont talk. ANY SUGGESTIONS?????
