AIM Without Limitsis an expansion of Autism In Mind
Children’s Charity (AIM), founded in 2011by Suki Choi.
The foundation of AIM began with just one child. When
Suki ﬁrst started her daycare business in Markham, she
was approached by a family whose son had been on
the government waitlist for autism therapy for four years.
Moved by their situation, Suki organized a fundraiser. The
response from the community and daycare parents was so
generous that Suki knew she could do even more.
Along with a team of volunteers, she began fundraising on
behalf of other local families to help their children access
professional therapy. She also began organizing free
Saturday social program for children with autism.
The momentum of these small acts of kindness continued
to build. Within just a few years, AIM became a Canadian
registered charity and one of Markham’s leading service
providers for children with autism.
One decade later, AIM Without Limits opened its doors in
September 2021. Our private elementary school provides
meaningful education to children with autism using an
Applied Behaviour Analysis-based (ABA) Ontario curriculum.
By developing and offering an inclusive and supportive
program with low student-to-teacher ratio classes, evidence
based skill-building, and specialized support and services,
we provide students with the opportunity to not only grow
but to also AIM Without Limits.
A Message From Our Founder & CEO
Providing personalized, meaningful education to
children with autism is more critical today than ever.
Navigating appropriate funding opportunities and
ﬁnding the most suitable treatment options for children
with autism and their families was never easy. With the
additional challenges of an ongoing global pandemic,
locating appropriate resources has become even more
Initially, building a registered private school for children
with autism was part of our long-term plan – an idea
that wouldn’t evolve for at least another ﬁve more years.
But similar to how our registered charity, Autism In Mind
Children’s Charity (AIM), began, we saw how much the
children we were currently serving could succeed in the
right environment. Developing a supportive education
system for children with autism could not wait.
In the fall of 2021, AIM Without Limits was established.
Our elementary school acts as the pillar in our 10-year
strategic plan. Within eight years, we hope to establish
the AIM Without Limits Community Hub, a supportive
place for individuals with autism featuring AIM Without
Limits, an inclusive childcare centre, recreational
activities, a vocational centre, and more.
At AIM Without Limits, we do more than provide an
equal learning opportunity for children with autism. We
offer an environment that celebrates the dignity and
worth of every child, regardless of their ability.

Children with autism have unique educational
needs – but those needs should not prevent
them from living enriched lives.
Registered with the Ministry of Education (BSID# 669075), our school offers individualized learning that supports each student reach their full potential. We have a highly qualiﬁed, multidisciplinary team that includes Board Certiﬁed Behavior Analyst (BCBA), psychologist, instructor therapist, Ontario Certiﬁed Teachers (or equivalent), educational assistants, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists experienced in the ABA ﬁeld. Our holistic approach recognizes students’ unique needs and guides them to be valuable community members.
Each student’s education begins with the creation of an Individual Education Plan (IEP). Small class sizes, access to specialized professionals, and a supportive, safe environment encourage healthy development. As part of our Emotional Regulation and Mindfulness Practice, we hold regular mindfulness breaks that teach self-regulation skills and beneﬁt even our youngest students.
Professional treatments are integrated into our learning program and include 1:1ABA, occupational therapy, speech-language therapy, and psychologist services. Weekly, our students attend music therapy and Occupational Therapy/Speech-Language Pathology (OT/SLP) group sessions, and annually, they have the opportunity to perform at our school concert. We also offer a comprehensive selection of afterschool activities, including arts, sports, and coding; life skills and vocational training, such as food preparation and housekeeping skills; and respite care.
We assess the minimum tuition rates possible to ensure our education program is accessible to all children with autism, regardless of their family’s ﬁnancial situation. AIM Without Limits receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of donors to help sustain our operational budget. Together, we can provide an equal opportunity for children with autism.
