The focus of AIMS Global is to train therapists, parents and teachers in accredited AIMS courses by offering support services for children, adolescents and adults.


Highly trained therapists are selected and placed with families to support individuals in everyday life. AIMS Global has several accredited training programs that potential therapists must undergo before being placed.


The AIMS philosophy strives to understand, accept and optimize autistic features. AIMS therapists support autistic individuals as well as the entire family.


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 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.


AIMS Global matches the best suited AIMS therapist with your child according to the family’s needs.
Don’t hesitate to start the process of placing a therapist for your family who can support your child’s every need. We can’t wait to meet you all!

1 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.

2 Assessment and setup

This can be done via Skype or 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, interests and strengths.  The parents are part of the process.

4 Supervision

Each child’s program is supervised through regular Skype observations, meetings and feedback on videos.

All program updates are shared with parents and the child’s team to ensure consistency throughout different environments.
