..he was 16 I think and the 'flat' was amazing. He has phobias about germs, so they made doors without handles and decorated the main room in maps because he is obsessed with geography. There's even a kitchen area, to help him to gain more independance.
It was amazing -totally geared to the boy's indivdual needs. It looks as though it will be a real haven for him and I got huge lump in my throat, thinking about how much it will help him.

I missed the start, with the majority of the background information, so will record the repeat -thanks. It's well worth a look, just to see the boy's happy face at the end.
