To help improve the lives of individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
UNFINISH3D PIECES wants to change how people view Autism by spreading awareness and understanding. We want families who are comfortable to share their own personal story with others. By sharing the journey, we believe we can better give a sense of understanding of what families go through, as well as what the individual living with Autism go through on a daily basis. Every story is so different and unique, and because Autism is a spectrum disorder, this will help others understand the truth in the statement, “if you meet one person with Autism, you meet one person with Autism.”
If sharing is not something you are comfortable with, then we understand the need for privacy and would be willing to help navigate in a more private manner. This is your story and your own journey and it’s up to you what you do with it. We just want to be here to help in whatever way that may be.
Our main goal is to help individuals and families by giving back and providing support. We don’t just want to be a one time resource, we want to be there along the ride as we move forward.
WE BELIEVE IN THE GOOD OF OUR COMMUNITY.
We want to keep all the proceeds local to help our neighbors in need. We want to be able to help families with special needs receive help in whatever avenue that may be. And if we can’t specifically help, we want you to have the information going forward to get the help you and your family need.
WE BELIEVE KNOWLEDGE HOLDS THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE.
We know how important intervention at an early age can be for children with any type of disability. We want to help educate and spread awareness of signs to consider in your child or loved one. We will be the sounding board for you and allow you to confide in us confidentially and help you move forward however that may be.
WE BELIEVE IN ADAPTIVE TOOLS.
We want to help people have access to a wide variety of adaptive tools. Maybe its an item that might not specifically be covered by another entity, just ask and we can let you know if we can help. We understand the financial struggles of families with children or family members on the spectrum and we want to be a part of providing assistance in a non traditional way.
WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF EDUCATION
We want to help encourage high school seniors and/or high school graduates no more than two years out of high school to further their education. We will help by providing a scholarship fund to an accredited post secondary institution. We want to help provide needed equipment and education to the special education departments in our local school districts.
WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF SPREADING AWARENESS
We want the message to be loud and clear of how Autism is a spectrum disorder. We want people to have an understanding of all the different things that people with Autism have to deal with everyday of their lives. We are passionate about making a difference and educating people in a positive light!
By 18 months, I started noticing signs of autism in Peyton. Major red flags that were much more obvious than we had even witnessed with Brody. Peyton had many sensory needs. He liked to tap a small, toy carrot on hard surfaces and would do it fast and quick.
