FOCUS

The focus of AIMS Global is to provide high-quality support services in various forms to parents with children diagnosed with ASD. We can either do online sessions or place a therapist with you, in or near your home.

MISSION

To provide affordable support services to families with a child diagnosed with ASD 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 ASD. We believe that anyone can support a child if you dedicate time in learning about the child’s interests and strengths with online 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 ASD and related 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.
