Program description

AIM offers fun, educational  and theme-based camps for children with autism to make new friends, learn new skills and have new experiences. Our professional therapists carefully choose the camp themes and plan excursions that are both entertaining and educational. Children have the opportunity to learn in a relaxed, recreational setting, and develop their social skills. Throughout the camps, we help children to be aware of their peers and teach them how to initiate communication.
