About Landon’s Puzzle Pieces
Landon’s Puzzle Pieces was founded in 2020 by a young man with autism named Landon of Huntsville, AL. For his 8th birthday, Landon told his mom that he wanted to help other children that share what he calls his Superpowers. Landon found that using varies sensory items helped him and he wanted to make sure others could have access to the same items that he did. In 2021 Landon’s family in Maryland expanded the campaign to include Washington County. In 2022, Landon’s Puzzle Pieces Maryland has partnered with PFA and expanded to Baltimore City, with the long-term goal of including the entire state. What started out as a child’s heartfelt desire to help others has spread to helping hundreds of special needs families in both Alabama and Maryland.
