Born in 2012, Three’s Pieces is a non-profit group in the Fairbury, Nebraska area, formed by three families with children on the autism spectrum to help promote autism awareness and provide support to families dealing with the diagnosis. The group is comprised of parents, grandparents, family members and friends of children who daily face the struggle of autism. Members of Three’s Pieces advocate for the children affected by autism and their needs. They are also committed to helping parents and caregivers who require special equipment or educational resources.

Autism Gala, Three's Pieces, Light It Up Blue, Fairbury, NebraskaAutism Gala, Three's Pieces, Light It Up Blue, Fairbury, NebraskaThree’s Pieces believes knowledge and awareness create power. No two children on the autism spectrum are alike, but once found, many options exist to thrive with this disorder. Statistically, 1 in 68 children is diagnosed with autism. Autism can be baffling since a child with autism looks “normal,” but his/her behavior will present perplexing and downright difficult situations for those in contact with the individual. This circle includes parents, grandparents, siblings, teachers, extended family and friends. Once labeled as an incurable disorder, this notion is crumbling with increased knowledge and understanding.

Autism Gala, Three's Pieces, Light It Up Blue, Fairbury, NebraskaAutism Gala, Three's Pieces, Light It Up Blue, Fairbury, NebraskaInvolvement plays a huge role in the success of Three’s Pieces. Members make a commitment to get out and talk about autism, raise funds, and support a variety of activities and events through participation. Some members participate in the Autism Speaks Walk in Lincoln, Nebraska, but the biggest awareness and advocacy project for Three’s Pieces is its Light It Up Blue event, which began in 2012 and now attracts hundreds of participants. It is an afternoon of family entertainment with games, clowns, music, a Silent Auction, a raffle and more. Posters and information highlight the lesson that children with autism are no different than most, but how they learn socially and educationally is different.

Autism Gala, Three's Pieces, Light It Up Blue, Fairbury, NebraskaAutism Gala, Three's Pieces, Light It Up Blue, Fairbury, NebraskaThree’s Pieces promises to continue to advocate for children with autism until research can find the explanation and cure for this disorder. As it states, “We want autism put in the history books.”

If a child with autism could tell you how he/she feels it would be something like this,
 

“View my autism as a different ability rather than a disability. Look past what you may see as weaknesses and see my strengths. Watch how far I go in my life with your advocacy, guidance and love for me, just as I am.”
