AIM Without Limits Private School

Our History

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
Without-Limits-School-brochure-final-adjusted-for-web-new_grey
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 difficult. 

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.

Sincerely, 
Suki Choi, Founder, Autism In Mind Children’s Charity William Chu, CEO, Autism In Mind Children’s Charity

Our Innovative Programming

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.

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.
