AUTISM SUPPORT & OPTIMIZATION

AIMS Global has revolutionized the way therapy for children diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) is offered. We are a company that specializes in training au pairs, nannies and parents to become therapists for children diagnosed with ASD as an affordable and sustainable option. We provide online and in-person support by either training your helper or nanny and providing you with a dedicated online therapist or we place a highly trained therapist in your home to work with your child. We believe that a complex disorder, such as ASD, can be supported and optimized in an affordable, yet effective manner that is easier for families to maintain. ABOUT AIMS

FOCUS

The focus of AIMS Global is to provide high-quality support services that are affordable, effective and practical. We train helpers, nannies and parents to generalize skills learnt from either an online or placed therapist. The focus here is to create sustainable options for families.

MISSION

To provide affordable support services to families with a child diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders by placing dedicated therapists to conduct sessions online or in person. Parents, therapists or nannies can complete accredited training courses.

PHILOSOPHY

AIMS Global strives to understand, accept and optimize individuals diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders. We believe that anyone can support a child if you dedicate time in learning about the child’s interests and strengths with online or in-home support.

WHAT IS AIMS?

Directors, Karla Pretorius and Nanette Botha, have developed a support system according to the needs of individuals with specific learning patterns. Karla and Nanette have done extensive research with adults diagnosed with ASD and related disorders to establish a program that is appropriate, accepting and stimulating to enhance learning opportunities.

AIMS is an awareness and interest-based approach that works with children and adults diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders. The focus of AIMS is on teaching concepts, rather than individual skills. AIMS is a holistic approach that addresses all areas of an individual’s development.
