What makes us different?
Where do we Serve?
Child-led. Play-based. Family-focused. We are a behavioral health agency that utilizes Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to support families and individuals in San Diego County. Our mission is to foster lifelong language development, social skills, and independent living skills based on the wants and needs of the individuals that we serve.
At AIM, we focus on Trauma-Assumed, Neurodiversity-Affirming practices by acknowledging that autism isn't a problem to be cured or solved. Instead, we view each neurotype as a set of strengths and challenges unique to the individual. Our role as behavior specialists is to support the goals of the child and family. We actively check in with our families in order to seek out their feedback and incorporate family input into our treatment plans. We strive to ensure that our families feel wholly informed about and excited by, the services they receive from AIM.
We are proud to announce that AIM Behavior Services has joined the select group of fewer than 500 organizations that have earned the BHCOE Accreditation by maintaining rigorous clinical standards and setting goals for continuous improvement. Click here to learn more.
