  • Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

    AIM is excited in starting a multi-year campaign to raise funds to build a community school that is Ontario accredited up to Grade 8 for children with autism that will also serve as a community hub. It will be a place where they can learn and grow without boundaries and achieve what others might think impossible. The autism-friendly design space will support them to reach maximal independence, provide a sense of security, and allow their fullest integration into society. We want to dream big for these children and we hope you to be part of it!

  • AIM Without Limits Gala

    Our gala theme this year is AIM Without Limits which is to raise fund to build an Ontario accredited Community School for children with autism up to Grade 8 (Grade 9-12 future phase) while allowing the public to use the space designed with ‘autism in mind’ for community purposes. This Community School will be a place where they can learn and grow without boundaries and achieve what others might think impossible. We want to help these kids not only reach their potential but go beyond —as if there are no limits. This Community School we envision will give children with autism the support they need every day while learning to interact and integrate with the community. It will focus less on moving through grades and much more on transitioning to full independence and a flourishing life. This is our vision of AIM Without Limits.

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.
