About AIMS

AIMS stands for Awareness, Interests, Movement and Sensory support system. We pride ourselves in a holistic approach to work with individuals diagnosed with ASD.

About AIMS

AWARENESS

Any person needs to be aware of his/her surroundings before any “real” learning can occur. When incorporating interest-based activities, there is a high motivation to learn. Individuals willingly participate and increase their awareness of their environment and peers. Together with awareness comes self-advocacy, where children are taught from a young age that their voice is important and powerful. This way, they can become advocates for their own lives and futures.

INTERESTS

Concepts are taught through each individual’s interests. In this way learning is made fun and productive at the same time. The individual’s future and career opportunities are thought about by exploring interests and hobbies.

MOVEMENT

Emotional coping strategies are taught through movement breaks and sensory activities. “Work” sessions and “movement breaks” are incorporated continuously. During the “breaks”, sensory activities, emotional coping strategies, gross and fine motor exercises and crossing the midline exercises are developed. We also work on art projects and physical exercise that reduce stress and anxiety.

SENSORY

Each individual has different sensory needs that can be seen as a crucial element to their development. If one is not aware of a person’s sensory needs and they are not addressed accordingly, the individual will not be in a state conducive to learning and general wellbeing.

SUPPORT SYSTEM

All approaches and therapies should be a fully integrated system in a person’s life. Family training and understanding are included as part of the training program. Parents are taught how to relate to their children and how to successfully communicate and share moments with their children.

ACCREDITATIONS

AIMS Global has received accreditation through IBCCES for the courses that are offered. This entitles AIMS therapists to use AIMS courses to further their studies in order to become registered Autism Professionals. The International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards (IBCCES), was established in 2001 to meet the training credentialing needs of professionals who work with individuals with special needs and cognitive disorders. IBCCES has since expanded into over 40 different countries with training centers and members all across the globe.
