Two Australind residents have created a different kind of Christmas display that all members of the community can enjoy.

Living with an autistic son, Karen and Laurence Davis understand the difficulties faced with autistic children around this time of year.

“It made us very sad to see our son Thomas miss out on something so special, so my husband and I wanted to make sure he didn’t miss out this year and created our own unique display,” Mrs Davis said.

As well as their Christmas display, the couple’s home on Sherwood Road features a Christmas village, LEGO houses, Santa’s workshop, dancing toys, a photo booth and a snow machine.

“Our display is designed so you can walk through and be a part of it, with all paths being big enough to fit wheelchairs,” she added.
