I have two questions and was hoping someone could help me out…
1. What are the… well, “criterias” for Selective Mutism in children?
I’m sure psychologist have ways to determine this accurately but I’d still like to know if there’s a way to seperate SM from “normal shyness”.
2. Is it possible for SM to go away by itself?
Assuming the child grows up in a safe, loving environment, but the SM is never really treated/acknowledged, is it possible that it might just go away.
What I’m after here is basically if it’s possible that a lot of the children that didn’t talk to some people as kids really have SM, but “outgrows it”. Or is it “just shyness”?
