Assembling Ikea furniture can be a headache. Complicated instructions, confusing diagrams and stray pieces that don't seem to fit anywhere are a recipe for an emotional meltdown.
But for Brad Fremmerlid, building Ikea furniture is no problem at all.
The 25-year-old from Edmonton, Canada, has severe autism. He can't read or talk, according to the Toronto Star, but he can understand even the most confusing diagrams and blueprints.
“Everyone tells us we should be charging more, but we’re not really looking for money,” Mark told the Star. “We just want him to have something meaningful to do."
Sonya Thompson, one of Made By Brad's first customers, told Global News she saw a positive difference in the 25-year-old's behavior the second time he came to her house.
“This time I got really nice eye contact from him and a smile," she told the news outlet.
