This is Max.

Max has Angelman syndrome (deletion).

Max is 6 years old and goes to a special school in Melbourne, he fills our house and lives with laughter and wins the hearts of everyone he meets with his beautiful cheeky smile.

Max can only say a couple of words but he usually can let you know what he wants by bringing objects to you or bringing you to what he wants. He understands nearly everything you ask him to do but only chooses to do what he wants (typical kid really). This cheeky little man has a wonderful older brother called Dylan who he loves to tease by stealing his toys and running off with them so that he gets chased around the house. Max also loves swimming, riding his bike, the computer (excels at deleting things), going for walks, riding in the car and bus and has an amazing appetite for watermelon and cheese!!
