THE DAY GOES BY QUICKLY WITH VISITS TO THE COMMUNITY HOMES AND WORKSHOPS AT AIMHI CENTRAL.
Children and adults with intellectual or developmental dissabilities require long term help. The dissabilities may be physical, such as hearing loss. They may affect mental ability, such as learning disabilities. Or the problem can be both physical and mental, such as Down syndrome. The problems are usually life-long, and can affect everyday living. AiMHi looks to be their support when and as needed.
A hard video to watch but very important to understand how far our Canadian society has come in your parents life time.
Launched the “on my way” transitions project to help students with special needs and their families prepare for life after high school. Four unique, talented and enthusiastic students and their families have generously agreed to share their hopes, dreams, challenges and successes as they prepare to leave high school. This is the "2 years later" video.
