Mission Statement

The founder of AIM Programs believes people on the autism spectrum are severely under-estimated as to their true capabilities and abilities due to the language, social impairments and inaccurate standardized testing procedures. Our mission and goals are to strengthen, supplement, and enhance language development and social skills in adolescents, teens and young adults on the autism spectrum through mentoring programs using research-based and evidence based methods such as various games and activities as tools for interactions. Another goal of AIM programs is to help teens and young adults gain employment in fields and careers of their choice through interactions and mentoring with college students and professionals in various fields.

Description

Company Keepers is a peer mentoring program for middle and high school students to learn communication and social skills.

A Hire Goal is a mentoring program for post secondary school/job exploration. Standardized testing does not give an accurate projection of the abilities of those on the autism spectrum causing many to be relegated to menial jobs when their talents could be put to better use.

Emergency Response Plan has 911 dispatchers, firemen, police officers and other emergency response personnel come to the program and teach the participants what questions they will be asked, and how to handle emergency situations.
