Initially envisioned as a small support group, Autism Involves Me (AIM) slowly transformed the entire Southwest coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. Its volunteers raised autism awareness, launched Canada's first autism friendly hotel, developed strategic small business partnerships, and taught schools and even a hospital how to better meet the everyday needs of people on the autism spectrum or with other sensory challenges.
Because of their pioneering efforts, AIM has become a world leader in adaptation and inclusion, and prompted media recognition of Channel-Port aux Basques as the most autism friendly town in Canada. AIM's work is not only inspiring, it also serves as a practical community model for others to follow.
