An exciting approach to data gathering exists for you with such clients: Basically, say, that since he won't talk, you want to tell him some stories that might get him thinking... and then introduce chacters in stories designed to be diagnositic...he will do ideomotor identification with incidents that he understands (head nods, twitches, etc). Tell about people he reminds you about...a boy who you thought was angry with his classmates, parents, siblings, etc, etc, and watch for his 'understanding' as evidenced by ideomotor changes. He might flinch on the word "siblings", say... Then ~boom~ you have one piece of the puzzle...and change or continue the story to keep disecting each possible parameter until you get the story/picture of his world. You can also illustrate what sorts of step these 'client' took to make some progress.
