In France, it is estimated that more than 60,000 children suffer from selective mutism. An anxiety disorder the symptom of which is an inability to talk with certain people or in certain anxiety-provoking situations.
Clément, aged 10 and Cataleya, aged 4, are both benefiting from a teaching method that has helped some children overcome the disorder.
Julie and Petronille, young adults, recall their struggle to regain their ability to speak.
