Brandon McCormack & Lizzie
Brandon has difficulty in making friends because his speech is sometimes hard to understand and people do not always understand how to communicate with people with Down Syndrome.
No one should be without friends when they are young and in school. No one wants to be alone. Though Brandon does have some friends, many find it difficult to understand him and tend to avoid him. The biggest benefit to Brandon in having Lizzie is not the tasks she performs, but rather in helping him make friendships.
