I have tried searching for an Islamic interpretation or hadeeth or a scholarly paper regarding mentally disabled people in Islam but have not found anything regarding this matter. My question is, if someone has a son/daughter who is mentally challenged (not autism, retardation) from birth, is it a curse from Allah? How should they handle it?

This is not a curse! It is a test for all those around him.
