1 doctor weighed in:

Can I homeschool my 5 year old daughter who has selective mutism?

In brief: Why not?

I do not see any reason why that would be harmful.
She will certainly talk. I am unaware of any advantage to a large classroom for a selectively mute person as they talk when they choose. She will benefit form therapy to help her overcome it with time, but homeschool might be the perfect setting for her.
