A child that will only whisper
By Amy Baskin Nov 22, But at two-and-a-half, the Hamilton boy changed. When Hudson described her son, McHolm agreed it sounded like selective mutism, an anxiety-based condition. We felt guilty and angry with ourselves because we had been pushing him to speak. It was the exact wrong thing to do.
What causes selective mutism
Hello Dr. Laura, my 6 year old son just start to whisper repeat occasionally. For example he would say "I'm going to draw a picture" and then he would whisper "draw a picture" to himself. This is very recent and he only does it occasionally. So I replied "oh I thought you whispered something" and he said i only said that to myself. So I told him that usually when I say things to myself I just say them in my head otherwise it gets confusing to others.
Selective mutism is a childhood disorder in which a child does not speak in some social situations although he or she is able to talk normally at other times. Selective mutism was first described in the s, at which time it was called "aphasia voluntaria. In the disorder began to be called selective mutism, a name that still implied purposefulness on the part of the silent child. This name is considered preferable because it suggests that the child is mute only in certain situations, without the implication that the child remains silent on purpose. Selective mutism is characterized by a child's inability to speak in one or more types of social situation, although the child is developmentally advanced to the point that speech is possible.
