Physio therapy,speech therapy, occupational and behavioural therapies are needed to speed up the mile stones in the growth of DS children. Homoeo treatment also helps in improving their brain related functioning.DS children will be very affectionate and very cute. Treatment/therapies should be started as early as possible to get better results. Hope, a day will come, when Down Syndrome in children and adults will be permanently cured. Nothing is impossible in this fast developing world because of the technological innovations made possbile by computers etc.
