Tuned to the opening notes of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21, this chime's happy song is made more appealing because of the cause it supports. One aspect of autism is hyper-sensitivity to sound. This chime is designed with a specially-sized clapper so its soothing tones play more gently. Music therapists often use Mozart's music when working with people overcoming the challenges of autism. Classical music, when used as part of Integrated Learning Systems, has been shown to offer therapeutic breakthroughs for children. Our chime serves as a reminder of the hope that music therapy continues to offer benefits.
The windcatcher's multi-color puzzle piece has special significance. The puzzle piece is a symbol for autism and has multi-faceted significance. For some it represents the mystery and complexity of different abilities seen among people with autism, for others the mechanical nature of an autistic person's thought process. Since every puzzle piece is different in some way, a puzzle piece symbolizes the diversity of the individuals affected. The bright colors are said to represent hope. It is a vivid symbol of solidarity among those who promote and support autism awareness. 25 in. Overall length. Cherry finish ash wood.
