Hi, I've seen Margo Sharp's name mentioned a couple of times on the SN forum. I really want my pre-teen to be assessed for possible expressive and receptive language problems as well as selective mutism. Not that severe at the moment but still not initiating convo with peers or others outside of home. She will however respond with brief answers if asked a direct question though. Has a rather unusual eccentric use of language. She used to be much worse in nursery and reception by going to school and not uttering a word all day. I did raise the issue of selective mutism to her then-teachers and GP but no one even heard of the condition, let alone believed me or given me the time of day. They just said she's shy and will grow out of it. Okay... 6 years later... She has improved slightly but I still would like her seen to see if there's anything I can do to help. As she is not making or keeping any stable friendships, I am concerned it's gonna get worse the older she is. I'd be willing to do private DX now. Enough of waiting around. My daughter's problems haven't really gone away with time.

How can I get hold of Margo Sharp though? I tried Googling but can't find any contact info about her.

I emailed her - her husband deals with all of her admin - she is amazing - she is being a witness at my tribunal next month but she is not cheap - a full assessment is £1400 plus travel costs but she for me was worth every single penny.

Now it £1400? I thought it was about £950 from reading previous posts. Will have to save up more. Thanks for letting me know bjk
