Oscar is our very happy little boy, born in March 2014. He lives at home with us his Mum, Dad and his little brothers Noah & Oakley. He is the BEST big brother the boys could ever ask for. The love and bond the 3 of them share is incredible.
Oscar was born full term but after a lot of difficulties and struggles at birth Oscar was left with brain damaging causing a diagnosis of CP at the age of 18 months. Since the age of 6 months Oscar has had to follow a strict physical programme of various stretches and activities on a daily basis. Oscar's condition effects and limits him in many different ways. He struggles with most everyday activities such as eating, sitting, standing, talking and walking unaided. Oscar relies on an adult for all aspects of his daily routine.
Oscar has to take various medications several times a day to control his muscles. Oscar has very varied muscle tone which can make daily positions difficult to maintain since SDR surgery it's improved a lot but is still a problem for Oscar.
Oscar is non verbal but is an amazing communicator. He eye points and uses his facial expressions to talk to us. He has also got a talker which he operates using a switch with his head. He has so much knowledge and information to express which he has been able to do since he's received this amazing piece of equipment.
Oscar is a very happy content little boy. He brings joy with his big cheeky smile and brightens up anybodies day. Oscar has an understanding that he cant do everyday activities even though he would like to, but he still makes the most effort to complete and take part in everything he can. Oscar is a very bright little boy and is constantly exceeding all expectations of his teachers and therapist, along with us as his parents.
Oscar & us work extremely hard for Oscar to reach all of his aims and goals. Some days are harder than others we can't lie about that but we feel so grateful everyday waking up to Oscar's smiling face.
