Directors, Karla Pretorius and Nanette Botha, have developed a support
system according to the needs of individuals with specific learning patterns.
Karla and Nanette have done extensive research with adults on the autism
spectrum and related disorders to establish a program that is appropriate,
accepting and stimulating to enhance learning opportunities.
AIMS is an awareness and interest based approach that works with autistic
individuals and related disorders. The focus of AIMS is on teaching concepts,
rather than individual skills. AIMS is a holistic approach that addresses all
areas of an individual’s development.
1 Initial Skype meeting (free)
Let’s discuss how we can support you and your family.
2 Initial assessment and program setup
This can be done via Skype or as an in-house assessment and includes setting up an individual program to work on specific concepts.
3 Matching a therapist
We match our most appropriate therapist to the family and child’s specific needs. This includes taking into consideration the interests and needs of the child and looking at the therapist’s previous experience, personality and strengths. The parents are part of this process!
The Director(s) of AIMS Global and/or AIMS Supervisor manages and supervises each child’s program. The constant supervision ensures updates to the program and ultimately continuous progress of each child. Regular Skype update sessions are held between the therapist and at least one of the AIMS Global Directors and/or Supervisor.
AIMS Global offers training in AIMS for family members, friends, nannies, teachers and other professionals. The training of the holistic approach ensures consistency for the child in all environments.
