I just gave a talk about Selective Mutism to a group of parents and professionals attending the "Te-Abraco" Conference on Autism Spectrum Disorders in Ribeirao Preto, Sao Paulo, Brasil. It was a very rewarding experience to be able to share information about research and empirically-based treatment for Selective Mutism as well as the similarities in symptoms between Selective Mutism and Autism Spectrum Disorder that children present. Sometimes, children are diagnosed with ASD when they actually have MS. Other times children may have High Functioning Autism and also have MS. Good diagnostic work and clinical history help differentiate these two disorders. For more information, please, do not hesitate to contact me. VJ
