The focus of AIMS Global is to train therapists, parents and teachers in accredited AIMS courses to offer support services for children, adolescents and adults.
Highly trained therapists are selected and placed with families to support individuals in everyday life. Therapists undergo accredited training programs beforehand.
The AIMS philosophy strives to understand, accept and optimize individuals diagnosed with ASD. AIMS therapists support the individual as well as their family.
WHAT IS AIMS?
AWARENESS, INTERESTS, MOVEMENT, SENSORY
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 children and adults diagnosed with ASD 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.
PROCESS FOR FAMILY
AIMS Global matches the best suited AIMS therapist with your child according to your family’s needs.
Please mention to us if you only want a therapist placed (without supervision) or training (for you, your current therapist or a teacher) as this is a different process.
Free Skype Meeting
Let’s discuss how we can support you and your family by scheduling an initial free Skype call with one of the two directors of AIMS Global.
Each child’s program is supervised through regular Skype observations, meetings and feedback on videos.
Assessment & Setup
This can be done via Skype or an in-house assessment and includes setting up an individual program to work on specific concepts.
All program updates are shared with parents and the child’s team to ensure consistency throughout different environments.
Matching A Therapist
Parents are part of the process of finding and placing the perfect therapist for their child and his or her specific needs.
We offer accredited training for parents and professionals which ensures quality on an international level.
