MISSING PIECE AWARENESS – Building relationships for businesses and autism families

To simply be aware of autism is not enough. Autism Awareness for us is providing the knowledge of autism and how families and members of the community are impacted. This understanding is implicit in our definition of autism awareness so that all members of a community can be empowered to create effective change. Awareness cannot be a static state. It is through active awareness, empowering people provided with an understanding the means to create change that acceptance can occur. This show will focus on the out of the box thinking and actions being taken by businesses, autistic individuals and families with autism to work together to create fully inclusive and accepting community environments.

Missing Piece Awareness trains, certifies, supports and promotes mainstream businesses. We train the staff to provide autism-accepting customer service in welcoming environments, while guiding the management team in implementing seemingly-simple accommodations-but are ones that parents and families living with autism embrace and truly value. We individualize each and every training, proposed accommodation and recommendation to address each company’s goals, industry, demographic and needs. We are the only company in the country doing this- so it’s an exciting time for us, while we educate the public about what we do and gain an army of supporters who believe in our mission. It is a true learning curve for most potential clients and business owners as we create a new standard for businesses.
