Conor has Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy, and as a result he requires 2:1 support 24/7. He strives for his independence and with the support of his therapy and care team, he is making excellent progress. Conor loves to chat, and his expressive communication has come on leaps and bounds, he is also super quick crawling and rolling; and with support and supervision he can sit for short periods of time.
