Thank you Brandon!
Brandon is one of AIM's many Alumni who we are proud to have had participate in our Early Intervention Program. We want to continue providing quality early childhood programs giving all kids the support they need to thrive.
At the AIM Program we believe;
....every child is talented, capable of learning, and has unique gifts, and strengths that should be celebrated...
....all small children need encouragement, support, consistency, and expectations...
....each child deserves to explore, discover, and extend knowledge as far as they can go.... 
 
Teaching very young children in a safe, supportive environment where they are valued for their sense of wonder, the AIM program can provide  many valuable social experiences.  This is accomplished through activities in a playbased environment where we provide experience in all five areas of development.  We support parents and families as well.  Your generous support of AIM is vital for us to continue.

We have taken large cuts to both funding and referrals in the past 3 years.  The State of Calif. has not voted to
reinstate funding as of August 2015.  We continue to seek scholarship funding for children who cannot afford Quality Pre-School.

We need your help.  Understanding how important Early Childhood Education is, when you make your gift to AIM, you help families and you show the world that Children of All Abilities are Special.

Our new photo is of Gracie and her sister. Grace just turned 3 years old and was AIM's last Center Based client! The following is a note I received from Gracie's Mom. The note says a lot about who and what AIM is about .............................

YOUR DONATIONS ARE NEEDED SO THAT AIM CAN CONTINUE IN 2016, THANK YOU.

"Hi Janie,
Thank you for all you have done for our family and most importantly our baby Gracie. You have really gone above and beyond for her and for us. From coaching us on how to get her into AIM, to providing her with the best teachers and wonderful pre-academic preparation, getting the other kids to be in class with Grace, to allowing us to have an event at AIM. Sitting through IFSP's, and being so flexible we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We count ourselves SO lucky to have been able to get Gracie into AIM.

Moving into the new year, I hope all good things come your way. As AIM moves toward it's new form, let me know if anything comes up that I can be of assistance
with (parent testimonials, promoting anything, etc.).

You will be happy to know that Gracie placed at just below the 6 year-old level in her pre-academic testing with the school district. AIM was such a huge part of that !

I wish you Merry Christmas and restful holiday season!
Love Amy"

As 2015 comes to a close we want to thank those who have helped this past year. As "Giving Tuesday" is upon us, the AIM Program continues to need help. PLEASE HELP US TO CONTINUE OUR MISSION, making a donation of any amount will help us to continue our goals and meet the need.

The young children and families needing our Early Intervention Services are still out there.
Over the last week I met with Brandon's mom, Teresa and a Mom who is expecting. Her new baby has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. This Mom was looking for ideas and answers on where to begin first. She wants to make sure her family and their new baby start out working on and knowing everything they possibly can to make sure their child has the best chance at success. I was very impressed by this parents determination and optimism.

AIM wants to continue guiding, teaching, and supporting all the new families who are beginning the journey of raising a child who needs early intervention .

Please Help Us Succeed

Asking for your help and support so that AIM can continue our Mission to provide Early Intervention to families and their small children with special needs.

Over the past for 40years AIM has helped many children and their families. Significantly reducing stress for parents, helping them to teach and expect success. We have provided Master Early Education Teachers, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, Physical Therapist and a Licensed Social Worker to help them Succeed. We provide all of these services for the State Set Rate of $33.00 to $70.00 per hour as a multidisciplinary team we guarantee . AIM can not manage all of these service's without donations. Please Help!!
