Is this Selective Mutism?

For reason, every time I'm alone with my dad, it's hard for me to reply to him. Like I struggle to say anything. I'll be lucky to get one word out. I hate being on an unnatural limbo.

Disguising My Voice

I'm and I have had selective mutism for my whole life. I went to therapy when I was younger, and started to get better. My main breakthrough part was when I moved miles away from where I grew up. I was exposed to new people, change. Recently, however, my SM has only gotten worse. One of the things that bothers me the most is my voice. Because of my SM, I disguise ...

Did anybody else have issues with homework?

I had undiagnosed selective mutism growing up. At home I would talk to anyone in my family. I played with girls who lived in my building and I never had an issue talking to them.

Help? Is this SM?


I'm a 21 years old girl, and I've been wondering if I actually might have selective mutism.

The situation that made me think and research on SM is that whenever I'm in certain conflict, and people expect me to answer questions, or give my opinion, or defend myself, or whatever, I am simply unable to speak. At all. My mind is in overrive with things I do want to say, but I can't express ...

It only seems to be getting worse?

Unusual behaviours/habits or associated difficulities?

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the forum.

Stressed and concerned parent here! My 4 year old has had ongoing difficulties and we are I would say 100 percent sure she has Selective Mutism. She had seen a Paed, received Play Therapy, undergone various assessments and shortly we have an appointment and assessment with an Educational Psychologist.

She struggles with high anxiety. She also has some unusual behaviours and other struggles. We are basically wondering if ...
