Control of epilepsy: The control of epilepsy has improved in the last few years with the introduction of new anti seizure medications..If your learning problems are related to frequent seizures or subclinical seizures, improvement in seizure control should provide improvement in the learning as well.

Possibly: Medication might be quite helpful.I would also look for toxic irises and sensitivities.

Cured no,control yes: Their are many medications for epilepsy. Many forms of epilepsy! you need a neurologist to determine clinically and usually with the help of an eeg monitor, not just a one time reading but one that is worn perhaps for a week or longer, and perhaps brain imaging studies. Neuro-psychological testing by an experienced psychologist will help determine the specifics of LD and rx needed. Med rx for life.
