Speaking to a GoFundMe page, which has raised almost £354,000 for the youngster’s recovery, his family said he is becoming increasingly involved in physical activity as part of his treatment.

They said: “Since September we have returned to Paris several times to consult specialists because, given his growth, we need to monitor the development of our son’s back, shoulder and hip.

“We now have to do this check every six months to make sure he doesn’t need another brace. Unfortunately, some new surgeries may also become necessary.

“In prevention, specialists recommend appropriate physical activity. That’s why we registered our son with his specialist teacher for horseback riding therapy and the swimming pool.

“And the latter has also been accompanying him to judo since the end of October. She does it very gently and of course doesn’t let go of an inch on the tatami.

“We also take him for adapted archery from time to time. Our son has always loved sport, he enjoys doing everything.”

“We also found a new speech therapist and thanks to her, our little knight has made great progress with swallowing and breathing.

“He can blow out candles again, is less likely to take wrong turns while drinking liquids, and is starting to keep the rhythm of songs better.

“He is also pursuing orthoptics and his vision continues to improve, as does his memory thanks to cognitive correction sessions with his neuropsychologist.

“He’s remembering more and more things he’s done or been told about throughout the day.”

The family said the boy had “very positive” school results, adding: “Our son’s teacher and guide are both very pleased with his progress: he manages to follow the lessons despite his difficulties because he is extremely brave and hardworking is.

“Thus, although he still has to automate the writing of letters, he still manages to improve his spelling and get very good grades in dictation, which he is very proud of.

“Also, thanks to all his mobility advancements (balance, left arm, muscle strengthening, etc.), he is increasingly able to play alone at home and in the hospital.

“This is a big step towards his autonomy, even if he’s still very dependent on very simple daily chores (tucking his shirt in his pants, trimming his meat, washing his hair, etc.)”
