It’s difficult to buy Christmas/birthday presents for a boy who doesn’t really want any presents. And has very, very specific interests – die cast model buses/lorries and the emergency services – that have remained the same for a good fifteen years. We decided to drop the Playmobil option a couple of years ago as it seemed a bit age inappropriate, but these guys are still played with regularly. I thought they deserved a group photo. Love em.
I got to thinking tonight about LB’s agency. I suppose this is because the work I’m doing at the moment is looking at the inclusion of people with learning difficulties in research. As usual, the research doesn’t bear an awful lot of resemblance to the experiences of people I know (including LB).
