movie about paralyzed boy

I'm looking for an 80's tv movie about a boy that became paralyzed in a diving accident and a family's struggles thereafter.

Are you sure the movie involves a boy and not a girl?

The plot you have described matches Joni (1979), except it was a girl in that film.

@Billz​ was it Diving In (1990) by any chance? How did the family react to him after the incident and how old was he approximately?

There is a 1979 movie called Joni, in which a girl becomes paralyzed after a swimming incident, but that is probably not it. A boy does become paralyzed in A Walk to Remember after a diving mishap, but that movie came out in 2002, it stars Mandy Moore. Either of these seem familiar?

What about The Dive from Clausen's Pier (2005)?
