For more than two years now, a group of dedicated parents and the AIM (Ability in Me) Board have made great strides in identifying the needs of individuals with Down syndrome and their families. From these endeavors came AIM – a non-profit, charitable organization located in Saskatoon offering specialized therapy and innovative programs that promote successful inclusion in home, school, and community for individuals with Down syndrome and their families.
AIM began offering services on January 19, 2015, to all Saskatchewan families who require additional services beyond what is currently available to them. Approximately 19 children with Down syndrome are born in Saskatchewan every year.
AIM is now in the position to begin programming because of financial support from the provincial government and donations from corporate, local businesses, families, and individuals. We had our grand opening on January 8, 2015, with the Premier, Brad Wall, who made the announcement of government funding and the Minister of Education, Don Morgan, and Minister of Social Services, Donna Harpauer were in attendance along with the Mayor of Saskatoon, and number of MLAs, families and children, and other supporters.
