Dr's have said its Nuero Rehabilitation center that can help.

Can you please advise me and also suggest best Nuero Rehabilitation center in world wide.

Answer
I'm so sorry about your son. You must be devastated.
There are many very fine rehabilitation centers in the world. In the USA, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago is considered to be the best by US News and World Report magazine.
I think your search will be helped by Googling "world's best pediatric rehabilitation hospital".
Good luck.
