Does anyone here have it or have you heard about it? My youngest daughter has it, she also has ASD. She is currently seeing a psychologist but won't talk to him.

I've heard about it from a book I read, it's called Silent Boy by Torey Hayden (my favourite author). Hope you're okay xDoes anyone here have it or have you heard about it? My youngest daughter has it, she also has ASD. She is currently seeing a psychologist but won't talk to him.
I don't know too much about selective mutism, but I've heard that child abuse or traumatic experiences can cause them. Have either of these happened during her life?Thanks and I am always very supportive and try to be understanding of her, I just wish that she had a friend that she could talk to, I think she feels lonely at times. She nods too when she is asked a questions or she shakes her head for a "no" She does enjoy colouring in the adult books, she says it helps with her anxiety and stress. She also gets depressed at times.
