    Hi @Twofourtwelve1
    Good to meet you.
    Your grandson should be under the care of a paediatrician and be seeing a paediatric physiotherapist. They are the best people to speak to about what exercise you can perform at home with him. Have you taken him swimming yet? A warm swimming pool is a fantastic place to relax and stretch his limbs, it's fun for him too!

    Hello @Twofourtwelve1

    Have you tried swimming? I take my disabled son swimming once a month. It find it helps him burn calories and maintain a reasonable level of fitness as well. He and I love it! He loves splashing around in the water. It is a great workout for me too.
