When autism meets Japanese culture

Billy's aunt and cousin are Japanese. It's an awesome part of all of our lives, to have people so close, and yet coming from such a different place (physically and culturally).

This Christmas, Thomas the Tank Engine has given way to animals. He brought a huge collection of animals on holiday with him, and one morning we found this...

And then, a little later... this...

And none of it was done by the autistic person in the room.

He had a secret smile on his face as he took in the systematic, organised and yet highly creative work of his cousin and aunt.

Ad then, he ran through and mixed them all up again!
