Over the last 10 years, Hsiu-Ying has been dedicated to finding the cure for selective mutism which was rarely recognized and treated effectively among children and adolescents. Children lived in silence for years in school. Many of them were misdiagnosed with autism or oppositional defiant disorder and were labeled as “refusal to speak.” She researched, studied, and consulted with national experts in treating selective mutism. Not only her child has successfully overcome selective mutism but also many of her clients who suffer in silence have confidently spoken with others in school and community and have successfully overcome their selective mutism.
