My son has developed several problems over the last year. He toe walks on his right leg (spasicity). He can't speak anymore (it is very labored). He has difficulty swallowing and chewing his food. He has lately developed balance issues and he wobbles a lot. He can't write with his right arm and keeps it flexed above his shoulder for balance.

Any advice would be appreciated.
