Darius has ASD and sensory issues are one of our biggest hurdles. the security of feeling surrounded, hugged, hidden, is very calming. An example, we were watching The Polar Express, Darius became so excited about the train coming scene that he began throwing everything withing sight, jumping on furniture, and stimming with noise. He did this twice at this scene. We asked him to sit in his Made4Me chair and watched the same scene over....and although is was happy, he did not throw, scream, or stim. He just LAUGHED!! As he did this I thought, I wish I had video of this because I don't think many understand how a chair can be a life changer in someone without "visible" disabilities.
We LOVE our new custom furniture! Nadine is so happy in her new sitter and able to sit up tall and draw using her slant table. And the step stool to wash her hands at the bathroom sink is even more than we imagined...she can stand up so well in it, independently, that she now has a new stander. This is fabulous! I will be dragging this stool all over the house so she can stand with me. What a back saver for mama!!! Huge thanks to all of you. We will be sending out this info to everyone we know including all her teachers and therapists. And we just adore all the beautiful mermaids painted with such perfection. I just noticed “Nadine” written on the back of her sitter. Priceless. Thank you thank you thank you! Huge smiles from Nadine. If it weren’t for COVID, we would have given you all great big hugs! P.S. The sitter is the exact right length to put her eye gaze “talker” device. She said “it is good”, “like”.
We could not have been happier with this experience from start to finish. John and Jim took their time in creating the best possible pieces that were not only functional and stylish, but therapist-approved for our daughter Veyla. Thank you form the bottom of our hearts for the time, care, and talent that went into making these special pieces, they are truly works of art! We are so grateful to have found Made4Me and will continue to spread the word of your good deeds with others.
