Alternate Names : Elective Mutism

Selective Mutism | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

Diagnosis of selective mutism is usually by physical examination. Tests include cranial CT scans, x-rays, dental exams, or examination by specialists. A neurologist or an ear, nose, and throat specialist may rule out other causes of lack of speech. A speech therapist and a psychologist can assess communication skills and mental state.
