Q: We would like to know the name and address of a specialist or institute in India who deals with Down's syndrome.
A:Down's syndrome is a genetic disorder that causes intellectual impairment or mental retardation. Most special schools working for the mentally disabled also integrate children with Down's syndrome. A list of such schools can be looked up in the section of Support Groups on our website. A paediatrician, child psychologist or a child development expert will be able to guide you about how to proceed. Most big hospitals have these specialists who can guide you.
