In recent months, more than five high school students, diagnosed with selective mutism have crossed the doorstep into our mental health agency. These adolescents were, for the most part, very bright and interested in the sciences. Others were interested in mathematics and indicated a desire to obtain a college degree in this field. All of them had wonderful grades in the above average percentile. All of them had the knowledge to make a difference in these academic areas and to assist the community as a whole. Yet they are potentially at risk for being penalized under current Common Core Standards for language, simply because they can’t talk.
