Why this girl didn't speak at school until she was seven

Ruweyda is seven years old and has only recently started talking in school.

She suffers from a condition called selective mutism, a severe anxiety disorder that means she’s unable to speak in certain social situations. School used to be one of those places - until she started music therapy classes.

Produced by Cebo Luthuli.
