Piper's Story

At age four, Piper was newly diagnosed with autism, and struggling in mainstream childcare.

Concerning behaviours were escalating, and her educators were at a loss. Piper’s family were also pushed to the limit. “We were in crisis mode as a family” says Piper’s mum Skye. “This diagnosis, which we still didn’t understand, was affecting every aspect of our lives, emotionally and financially. We were looking for something – anything – that could help.”

Luckily, Piper and her family were supported by AEIOU.

AEIOU creates a safe and supportive environment for kids and families to ‘feel seen’ and get the support they so desperately need.

After three months, Piper was walking into class without Skye by her side, something she had never been able to do. Amazingly, after 12 months, Piper was ready for mainstream schooling.

“The difference AEIOU has made to Piper is extraordinary”. Skye says, “Autism has taught us compassion and patience we didn’t know we had. We were given tools to support Piper which we didn’t have prior to AEIOU, and we are surviving so much better.”
