Intellectual Disability & Developmental Disorders

Learning Disability and Developmental Disorders are a group of conditions caused due to impairment in physical, learning, language or behavioural areas. Some of these are Intellectual Disability formerly called Mental Retardation (MR), ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and Autism.

These conditions begin during the developmental period during childhood and may impact day-to-day functioning. Patients suffering from these conditions receive and process information differently because their brains are programmed differently than normal.

Most of these disabilities are caused by a complex mix of factors such as genetics, parental health, pregnancy behaviours and birth complications.


  • Family history
  • Genetic variations
  • Advanced maternal age
  • Pregnancy health
  • Sibling with same disorder
  • Low birth weight
  • Premature birth
  • Pregnancy infections
  • Environmental factors like lead exposure


At Dr. S. Vidya Prakash Homoeopathic Clinic, we have witnessed how numerous cases of children with illnesses such as MR, Autism, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy have responded to homeopathy. The response of patients to doses of homeopathic remedies depends entirely on their immune system.

First, we round up all the symptoms of the child and prescribe medications according to their totality. Our homeopaths might prioritise symptoms such as epilepsy and harmfulness. The miasmatic approach of homeopathy helps treat the brain to respond to the treatment better. In such cases, remedies with speech, behavioural, occupational and physiotherapy provide effective results.

Since homeopathy alters the immune system and treats the body as a whole, consciousness and concentration of the brain is corrected as much as possible. Our homeopaths try to bring about the attainment of self-sustainable living of the patients. For developmental delays, if eye contact post-birth is not achieved, we advise homeopathic treatment as early as possible. Lack of stability of the neck is another common symptom that we see at the clinic. The stages of this condition are interlinked, which is why one can achieve only step-by-step progress.

In cases of ADHD, homeopathy helps improve concentration levels, which contributes to better listening and behaviour, with time. In Autism, spectrum behavioural intensity can be reduced with homeopathic treatment. For conditions such as MR, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy, the intensity of brain pathology is evaluated prior to recommending an effective treatment plan.
