In brief: No

There is no cure for learning disabilities, which includes dyscalculia (difficulty in understanding, remembering, or manipulating numbers or number facts such as multiplication tables).
School psychologists and/or private testing psychologists can evaluate a child to see what his strengths and weaknesses are, and then make recommendations for educational therapy to help overcome his weaknesses.

In brief: Developmental

Dyslexia is a term that should only refer to a disorder of reading.
However, some use it to describe children with problems identifying numbers. This is more common in girls. Usually this is a developmental problem that improves over time. Good learning methods are available to help over come the problem. There is no cure, but there is good recovery.
