    Hello @syedusman and welcome to the community, how are you? 

    Thanks for introducing us to your son and telling us a bit about him, how is he coping with his CP? Is he receiving all the support he needs from his GP or other health professionals?

    Hi @syedusman,
                                Welcome to the community and thank you for joining us. How are you? How is your son? Please can I ask, does your son have input from any medical professionals such as a paediatrician or a physiotherapist? These medical professionals are best placed to advise on how to address the difficulties that your son is facing, however I know that swimming can be a great way to help relax muscles and help to build them up. I am going to tag in our Specialist Information Officer for Cerebral Palsy @Richard_Scope who may be able to advise further. Please do take a look around the community and join in with any conversations which may be of interest to you and please do ask any questions you may have and we will do our best to answer. We are a friendly and supportive community and we are here to support one another. Thank you.
