I suffered from selective mutism as a child when very little was known about this frequently misunderstood condition. In my teens and early adult years I developed further complications as a result of my untreated anxiety. Today, it is important to me to share my perspective.
This is my selective mutism story …
In part one I tell you my story from both my past and present perspectives. I offer insights gained and lessons learnt, and I offer a few words of advice.
… and the recognition of myself
In part two I look beyond the limitations of selective mutism and explore the incredible talents and traits we all have that deserve celebration.
Some comments about “I Have Something to Say!”

“What wonderful insight and wisdom this author has opened to with her life journey gifted with Selective Mutism. I quote,”I found that denying your true nature and constantly striving to be someone you are not is an exhausting, unfulfilling way to go about your days”. This book offers so much to children and parents and teachers of all children not just those with Selective Mutism. Well done on all fronts.” Rosanne Forde
