Hi - my son is 18 and totally mute. It is not selective as he speaks to no one. We have had professional help but it seems to be more to do with controlling things around him. He is also diabetic which is a concern as he can also use that to control situations and me. He has spent the whole weekend 'sulking' in his room - I am at my wits end as to what else I can do. He does not interact with other boys or girls outside of school. I have a partner who is very patient but we don't see much of each other because of the situation. My son's father left the country a few years ago which probably didn't help... I love my son and want to help him but am really at a loss. I find the situation very, very depressing and worrying. Any ideas? Thanks!
