Working at unlocking damaged brains

Conrad Tullis was a toddler when he fell into the swimming pool at his grandfather’s home.

Submerged for unknown minutes, he suffered severe brain damage and, eight years later, remains confined to a wheelchair or stander, unable to communicate apart from a soft coo or laugh.

His parents, Liz and Matt, have never given up. They’ve pursued a wide range of help for their son — speech and occupational therapy, acupuncture, even horse therapy — despite doctors’ dim prognosis.
