Hello everyone. I am new to this board. I am not even sure this is the right place to be. I took my son in to the neurologist yesterday to be evaluated for Autism. They doctor said his first impression is not Autism, but selective mutism. I am utterly confused by this despite all that I have read. It does not explain some of his other behaviors. He is scheduled for an EEG tomorrow, and MRI soon, and tons of bloodwork to test for the normal stuff, cassin and gluten allergies, and chromosome abnormalities. I guess he wants to rule other things out. I was just wondering if anyone else was dealing with this.
