Why we do what we do... is very important to me.
I met Aizen (my profile picture handsome boy) when he was 5 years old and now he is entering high school. I value dedication and to me, dedication means I'm responsive to the growing needs of the children and families that we serve. Aizen is entering high school this year and his needs are continuously changing. He cannot just receive a table top one-to-one therapy. He should go out to the world and learn life skills, job skills and learn about different types of relationships. There are so much that I want to teach him but our current AIM wasn't able to offer those services.
We didn't plan to open this special needs private school, however, COVID happened and we started facing more families looking for special care for their children. We currently have over 90 children on our waitlist looking for quality care and education. We decided to respond to this growing needs especially during this unprecedented time by opening a private elementary school for children with special needs so that they can receive consistent high quality education. Our AIM Without Limits Private School will offer a multidisciplinary care under Clinical Psychologist, Ontario Certified Teachers, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, Behaviour Therapists, Music and Art Therapists.
This year, we are all running with one goal so that our children can AIM WITHOUT LIMITS for their future!
Join us today to run, walk or donate so that we can support children who deserve the best education opportunity to reach their full potential.
“The highest result of education is tolerance” – Hellen Keller
At AIM, we always seek for the highest possible results in empowering our community with equitable access to a meaningful education. When individuals from all walks of life can experience and learn from new perspectives, experiences, ways of life, cultures, and countries, we start to dissolve the invisible barriers that can keep us socially distant.
Different does not mean less. A community that accepts and tolerates each other’s differences demonstrates compassion and the strength of unity.
The back-to-school season that we expect every September has always been stressful for many families. Going back to school this September during an ongoing pandemic will be even more stressful, especially for students with autism/autistic individuals, since our education systems will be operating with multiple uncertainties and limited resources. This is why AIM is starting a private elementary school this September, called AIM Without Limits, to empower students and families with a meaningful education option that is delivered with the utmost care and efficacy.
The AIM Without Limits program is the foundation we have built for and with our autistic learners/children with Autism. AIM provides programming, support, and services that young autistic children/ children with autism can use to accomplish their individual goals, regardless of their family’s financial situation.
We want to grow with our children and continue to provide them equal opportunity to learn and reach their potential. This is why AIM Without Limits School for Children with Autism will be opening this September!
AIM Without Limits School will offer programs for children from to Grade 8 with Ontario Certified Teachers, Applied Behaviour Analysts and Therapy Team, Psychologist, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists and more. Built into the programming will be Life Skills programs, which include skills like learning to wash and fold laundry, using public transit, and money and banking skills. Vocational Programs, Afterschool Programs which include; yoga, arts/music and homework club, and a Best Buddy system will also offer opportunities to interact with neurotypical peers, in order to develop meaningful friendships in a safe environment.
This is a huge endeavour for AIM, we know with your help we can achieve our goal of $88,000.00 ensuring our students are receiving the best education possible!
