In brief: Hard to answer

This question depends a whole lot more on your child's learning ability than their cerebral palsy.
Cerebral palsy is a movement disorder, not a learning disorder. So many children with CP can learn using the same methods as any other child. If you are unsure if your child has a learning disability you should ask your doctor or a developmental pediatrician for advice.
