Tuned to the opening notes of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21, this chime's happy, calming song is made even more appealing because of the significant cause it supports, autism awareness. One aspect of autism is hyper-sensitivity to sound. This musically-tuned chime is designed with a specially-sized clapper so its soothing tones play more gently in the wind.
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. This chime serves as a reminder of the hope that music therapy continues to offer benefits for more and more individuals.
The Multi-Colored Puzzle Piece on this chime's windcatcher has special significance. The interlocking, multi-colored puzzle piece has become an international symbol for autism. Its significance has become multi-faceted. For some it represents the mystery and complexity of different abilities seen among people with autism, for others it represents 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.
