Meet The Neely Trio Mia, Khloe, and Brian Neely. All three of these siblings are clinically diagnosed with Autism, and are all on different levels of the Spectrum.
Mia is 11 years old and is the highest functioning of the three siblings. With the help of all the Occupational and Speech Therapy she has received over the years and continues to receive Mia can now communicate her basic needs and wants. Mia still struggles with communication and unfamiliar people, places and things, which can cause meltdowns. Mia is also clinically diagnosed with anxiety and also has diplegic cerebral palsy. Mia enjoys My Little Pony, Littlest Pet Shop, Animal Jam , reading, and Mia loves animals. Mia wants to be a Veterinarian when she grows up.
Khloe is 7 years old and is on the middle of he Autism spectrum when comparing the three of the siblings. Khloe also has come a long way with communication Thanks again to all the Occupational and Speech Therapy she has received over the years and continues to receive. Khloe uses basic one word answers and queues to express her needs and wants. Khloe is also clinically diagnosed with Anxiety. Khloe is aware of her surroundings and peoples feelings, however she does not know how to express if something is wrong with her. Khloe enjoys playing with Peppa Pig figures and watching sign language and other learning videos on YouTube. Khloe has so much personality and loves to be over dramatic, with that being said everyone who knows her says she belongs on Broadway.
Brian is 6 years old is the most severe out of the siblings. Bran is physically 6 but mentally 12 to 18 months old. Brian is completely nonverbal but has and continues to learn other ways to express his needs and wants, however does show self-injurious behaviors during his meltdowns. He is not aware of his surroundings. Brian relies on a lot of sensory to sooth him throughout his days. Brian loves to rock in his recliner,swing, jump on trampolines, play in water, and enjoys wagon rides.
An Autism Service dog would be a triple blessing and a great addition to The Neely family. Every one of these siblings would benefit from the AMAZING love, compassion and companionship that Autism Service dogs have to offer. The Autism Service dog will however be primarily used to fit Brian's needs during his severe meltdowns and self-injurious behaviors. We wholeheartedly believe that this service dog will bring each one of these children a sense of calmness that they have never experienced and words cannot express. Please consider making a contribution towards bringing a triple blessing to The Neely Trio. Thank You!
