Lego is more than just lovely bright colourful bricks to us, Lego has been a massive part of our family life for the last four and a half years. Little Bird discovered Lego just before he turned 4 years old and I was soon to discover that it was going to be a lifeline for my son. When Little Bird turned 4 years old he was building Lego sets designed for children up to the age of 8 years old all on his own.
It didn’t take me long to release there was something special about my boy and their was something truly amazing between him and Lego bricks. After a long fight with hospitals and doctors we finally got a diagnosis two months ago that Little Bird has Aspergers Syndrome and high functioning autism. Every appointment we have had with the specialists and doctors we were quizzed about what he loves doing the most, every time we were asked that question and we would always reply with Lego!
