Ottawa toddler learns to talk despite rare jaw condition
Wyatt Scott, toddler with rare congenital trismus, can't open his mouth
An Ottawa toddler is learning to talk despite an extremely rare disorder that prevents him from opening his jaw.
Wyatt Scott gained international attention last spring after his parents created a website — What's Wrong With Wyatt — seeking advice from anyone who might know something about his disorder, congenital trismus. Despite the call for help, there are still no concrete answers.
