Neurodevelopmental Support & Optimization

AIMS Global strives to decrease therapy hours for individuals diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental condition, such as ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), etc. We aim to decrease hours by increasing functional skills and utilizing successful strategies at home to keep our children, adolescents and adults calm and in control of their own emotions.

We offer full-spectrum online courses for parents to equip them with the tools to support their child at home. We also offer live-in or online therapists and train “therapy partners”
as an affordable and sustainable option. We believe that complex disorders, such as ASD, ADHD, SPD, etc. can be supported and optimized in an affordable, yet effective manner that is easier for families to maintain and sustain financially.

FOCUS

The focus of AIMS Global is to provide high-quality support services that are affordable, effective, and practical. We train parents, au pairs and professionals to generalize skills learnt from either an online or placed therapist to the home (and other) environments. The focus here is to create sustainable options for families.

MISSION

To decrease therapy hours by increasing successful strategies in the home environment. 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 au pairs can complete full-spectrum & 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 to learning about the child’s interests and strengths through accredited full-spectrum courses and support. We offer online and in-home therapy options too!

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 supporting parents and their children in providing successful strategies to decrease challenging behaviors through increasing coping skills, communication, and self-regulation. AIMS is a holistic approach that addresses all areas of an individual’s development. We provide full-spectrum online courses and in-home or online therapy options, if required.
