Meet Ben. He is a 5-year-old boy who experienced an infection at 18 months leaving him with a spinal cord injury. His first pool visit was full of tears. His mother’s goal was for him to learn to swim and become as independent as possible with the physical limitations of a spinal cord injury. Due to his infection, he has no functional use of his legs but has almost full use of his arms to push his wheelchair. Aside from his physical impairments, Ben is a typical 5-year-old boy with a strong ability to learn. He LOVES to be a daredevil and the pool provides the perfect space for him to move!
