AIM provides help for ?
AIM supports people by making connections, getting answers, and sometimes, just listening. Services span a lifetime - providing help with education, health care, housing, employment and more. Programs include trainings, workshops, and conferences for individuals, parents and professionals. Past examples of programming include Healthy Living Classes, transitional workshops, and Consumer Conference. Many recreational activities are sponsored by AIM such as dances, picnics, and fishing outings. AIM also provides, information about public policy changes and assists with one-to-one advocacy, public policy advocacy, and People First self-advocacy. In the near future we will offer Sibshops (for siblings of children with a disabiltiy).

What is People First Language?
People First language puts the person before the disability and it describes what a person has, not who a person is. An example would be to say "people with disabilities" instead of "the handicapped or disabled." Click here for more examples of People First Language.
