About the Autism Heart Puzzle Design
The autism puzzle is seen with many interpretations of meaning. Dani has painted the puzzle pieces within the shape of a heart to symbolize all the love, patience, and understanding needed for each autistic child / person. Autism in itself is like puzzle pieces, not one case is similar to another and each is beautiful in its own way.
The heart with the missing white puzzle piece and the scrambled words “Every Piece is Unique” represents the differences in how the autistic child / person processes the world around them. Some are non verbal and have the frustrations of communicating. Some have sensory issues which may include feeding problems. Some are just seen as eccentric. Each is unique in their own way.
The second heart puzzle shows all the pieces coming together. Through early intervention and appropriate treatments, people with autism will lead fuller, and more complete lives. Like a puzzle, the pieces of autism fit together and create a beautiful and rewarding picture that has the possibility to teach a lesson, and make a difference.
About the Artisan : Danielle Nani,
also known as “Crochet Critter”:
In 2010 I had my first child, and in 2011 I had my second. With Autism (PDD-NOS) and papillary thyroid cancer playing a role in our family’s life, it only seemed natural for me to be a stay at home mother. With two non verbal autistic daughters, my days are filled with Early Intervention autism therapies including Parent Infant Program, speech, occupational and group therapies. To keep my creative juices flowing, I enjoy hand painting these special Autism Heart Puzzle Scarves as a way to promote Autism Awareness, Early Intervention and to help earn an income from my home business.
