Hello moms
My DD is 4 years she started JK in September Her problem is she is not communicate verbally with teachers & peers.My friends has same age children they play together but she always wants me,never play with others.if anybody asked her any thing she just murmurs or whispers. her teacher suggest us she has selective mutism,but one day he says no she does not.I feel she has problem,,too.but my dr. said she dont have SM.she is ok with him so closed.
As a mom what can I do? I feel bad for her but some people taunt me too so feels bad.
She remembers all poem by heart which they learn in school...but she does not share with school or others only with they think she dont know anything....
Please Help me she has really SM or not.....Please reply me if you have any suggestion...

I ask becasue the US as programs to evaluate kids for issues such as this, I do not know what Canada offers but i would start at school and ask for a full evaluation to be done. Is she shy and speaks softly or is she truly mute at times. No sound solicited at all?
