Prognosis for Landau-Kleffner Syndrome: The prognosis for children with LKS varies. Some affected children may have a permanent severe language disorder, while others may regain much of their language abilities (although it may take months or years). In some cases, remissions and relapse may occur. The prognosis is improved when the onset of the disorder is after age 6 and when speech therapy is started early. Seizures generally disappear by adulthood. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Landau-Kleffner Syndrome Information Page: NINDS) ...see also Overview of Landau-Kleffner Syndrome
