AIM Without Limits captures the very essence of our values and vision. We believe it’s not only possible, but necessary, to provide support and services to each child with autism according to their needs so that they can succeed and achieve their full potential without boundaries.
As of November 2021, 50,000 families are currently on the government waitlist for funding. The 40-year record high inflation in Canada is shrinking disposable income for many average families. And for these families who are still waiting for Ontario support, autism therapy services will become less accessible for many.
That’s why our fundraising goal this year is to raise at least $60,000 for ourAIM Without Limits Subsidized Therapy Programto make this program accessible to more families. This is an integrated subsidized therapy services that includes 40-60 hours of IBI (Intensive Behavioral Intervention) per month at a low flat rate that makes it financially accessible. This support program will allow the children to receive services for up to one year while waiting for government funding.
Please join our Team AIM by running, walking, rolling, or donating. You will be giving autistic students/children with autism access to therapy services without barriers. With your support, they will have the opportunity to learn, thrive, and AIM without limits! Registration please click here >> https://raceroster.com/34025?aff=GHGTX
With the continued challenge from Covid-19, AIM annual fundraising Toonie 4 Autism Campaign that we usually held with our community and business partners in April and May of each year will continue to take place virtually. Toonie 4 Autism is an annual event where we bring communities together to raise the awareness of autism and to raise much needed fund for our subsidized programs like AIM without Limit Subsidized Therapy Program. This program was designed to help those families gain access to affordable one-to-one therapy for 12 months (with 50-60 hours of therapy per month) at a subsidy rate while they are waiting for government funding. Many children have benefited through the 9000+ subsidized IBI hours that this program has provided.
Our subsidized programs existence rely solely on the generosity of supporters in our communities. Your support will help AIM continue our mission of:

AIM Without Limits captures the very essence of our values and vision. We believe it’s not only possible, but necessary, to provide support and services to each child with autism according to their needs so that they can achieve their full potential without boundaries. This program is an integrated subsidized therapy service that includes 40-60 hours of IBI (Intensive Behavioral Intervention) per month at $20 per hour. This will allow families with limited financial resources to access therapy services for their children while they are on government wait lists for funding.

Our goal is to provide services in a safe environment for all of the children and staff that walk through our centre doors. You can help make this a reality by supporting our efforts to secure medical grade air filters for each of our therapy rooms.

Each year, more children are diagnosed with autism than with cancer, diabetes and AIDS combined. Many children with autism in Ontario are still on the government’s waitlist for support. AIM wants to create more subsidized and free programs for children while they are waiting for government support.

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.
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!
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.
