Most teachers have come across a child with what can be called 'selective mutism'. They are children who just won't speak in certain situations, in spite of being physically able to do so. How do you make life easier for the child and his peers? "Why doesn't he speak?" is a question others often ask, and it is very important that the teacher gives a positive reply - "Because he is thinking," the teacher replies in the book. See the video on advice about how to work with selective mutism.
