In brief: Not really.
True mutism is a very serious response to what probably is a profound emotional/developmental problem. The symptom (mutism) may go away with time & circumstances, but it's unlikely that the underlying problem will leave forever without a trace.
This condition warrants ongoing professional management and monitoring, for years.
