He continues his therapies which are occupational, Speech, and physical therapy at school. He has changed so much since being in school setting for first time.

Isaiah is a very happy boy, has an amazing personality, sensitive, loves his family, his dog Emma, absolutely loves animals and loves being at the ocean.
