Thanks for writing to us.
In cerebellar atrophy there is no special diet to enhance her mental abilities. Regular practice and physiotherapy only can help her. Regular massage of the affected muscles can help regaining some muscle tone.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

There are no special diet or medicines to help regenerate damaged brain tissue. However, it is important for you be hopeful that with increasing age, your child might improve significantly with proper training and physiotherapy. Beware of people who claim to have magical treatments.
