Ok, so today was my first day of school...yikes grade one is hard...anyway thats a whole other story. I found out last night that one of the children in my class was a seletively mute child. I had no idea what that really meant until today when she never said a word. Her record says she spoke to the kids in kindergarten sometimes but not one word to her teacher. This scares me. I mentioned it to my administrative team and resource teacher and they blew it off "mom needs to take responsibility" "fix it" "dont give it any attention" i am extremely frustrated and think this is more serious than everyone else. Its only the first day and perhaps she may warm up to me but in the meantime what should I do????
