Nurse72 : The stuttering is caused by a misconnection of certain pathways in the brain. Researchers have discovered ways to bypass or reconnect this pathway. Unfortunately a mentally handicap person has a much different problem with development in the brain. Their arent any procedures available for this type of disability.

This is a problem with the brain tissue itself and unrelated to the pathways of the brain like stuttering is
Developmental delay or mental retardation is usually caused by a underdeveloped brain.
