Autism School for Special Needs in Markham & Toronto – GTA
AIM Community Contribution since 2014
“We serve children and the community in ways that you can see and measure.”
Have you ever had your dream taken away from you?
Children with autism and their families in Ontario are fighting to keep their dreams alive this year. The Ontario government is set to change the Ontario Autism Program funding model for the worse, which will erase the progresses these children have worked so hard to achieve. In this year’s Toonie 4 Autism campaign, AIM’s target is to raise $25,000 to help provide more subsidized group programs and free programs to help these kids during this difficult time. Every child deserves the chance to dream. Please donate to help us give them a fighting chance to reach their full potential.
What is Autism?
Autism is not an illness. It’s a difference in the way the brain develops, and it shapes how children with autism interact and communicate. Friends, family and people in the community may not know how to respond to children with autism. Each child with autism is unique. But at heart, we are all the same. We need affection, acceptance, and space to be ourselves. The greatest thing you can do is be a friend. Be kind, and be inclusive. If our communities come together supportively, every child with autism can reach his or her full potential.
