Could we be turning a corner in our perception of disability when toy giant Lego acknowledges that people with disabilities do live our society.  

Its a small but significant step when the toymaker produces a figure with a wheelchair and a helping dog.  But how far can the toy giant go to raise the necessary awareness.  

Some disabilities remain invisible in our society.  We see disability at work, school and supermarkets.  But we don't see those with the most server and complex disability.  They are in special schools, respite centres, or at home with hard working carers.  

A well done to Lego for taking the first step.  It might be sometime before we see the first Lego respite centre or special needs school, but at least the wheelchair user can access the Millennium Falcon if their new model has an operating ramp.
