Did you know? Only a small portion of children have the opportunity for early diagnosis and treatment

Poor or impoverished countries often have a greater number of children in their population structure and consequently, a greater number of children with developmental disorders. In India, for example, 40% of the 1.3 billion inhabitants are children.

But in addition to the frequency of children, we also have an increased risk to children and adults. Well-established risks to development include everything from intoxications and infections during pregnancy, to the nutritional risks of pregnant women and babies, not just nutritional deficits relating to calorie deprivation, but also factors relating to micronutrient deficiency. Thus, adding the risks increases the symptoms and diagnoses.
