About this client:
Oscar 7, has cerebral palsy and associated medical conditions. He loves to play role-play games, Lego and Paw Patrol toys. He adores technology and likes to be active. He is a very caring and determined little boy who is a joy to spend time with. Oscar is mobile but can be unsteady and suffers from fatigue, so will need someone proactive who can learn when to give extra support and when he requires quiet time.
