Hi,

I’ve worked with a few selectively mute children and they were all really different. Something that did work was talking through puppets or toys. Another thing that worked with one child was giving them a topic or question to discuss then leaving them with the ipad and their favourite toys or teddies, they then recorded their own conversation with their toys and we watched the conversations together afterwards. Eventually this led to speech from them. It was a slow process and all of the children I worked with were a bit older but may still be worth a shot. Good luck
