Every child is a gift. They just unwrap their packages at different times. For many children with autism, ABA therapy is a life changing gift that provides an opportunity every child deserves; that is, to be an active and connected member of their family and community. This year, Ontario's government has announced changes to its funding model for the Ontario Autism Program, which supports therapies for children with autism. This new program will only be accessible for 600 children in its initial stages.  However, according to a 2020 report from Ontario's fiscal watchdog, approximately 27,600 children are on the waitlist for funding to receive treatment. 

Our question remains- what about the 27,000 other children?

In response to the ongoing problem of long government funding waitlists, AIM works to provide accessible ABA therapy for families who need it most. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to added costs to keep all children and therapists healthy and the in-person fundraising events that AIM Children’s Charity relies on to subsidize the cost of therapy hours for children with autism have been cancelled in the interest of public safety.

10 years ago, AIM started with a small bake sale and the desire to help one family whose child needed ABA therapy. Today, you can help continue our mission to give children and families a chance to thrive for years to come!

Complete your gift today and you can instantly change the life of a child who is waiting for the chance to learn, play, and dream. 

Join us in breaking down barriers for the children that AIM supports!
