What is AIM?
AIM is a group on the Isle of Wight for adults (over 18) who are Autistic or have Aspergers, also known as an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC). It is not a group for parents or carers, or professionals.
AIM is a user led group. This means that with support, people who have ASD will decide what happens in the group and help to run the groups.
AIM is also an advocacy group, to listen to what adults with ASD have to say about life on the Isle of Wight. We promote self advocacy (speaking up for yourself) Peer advocacy (speaking up for each other) Autism rights, and inclusion.
We are creating new ways of doing this to involve more people, to listen to more people and to make sure that services and businesses listen to what you have to say and act on it. Some members become involved in training, or attending meetings.
AIM is supported by a partnership between Positive Difference and People Matter IW. These organisations work together to support the group.
If you would like to be involved, or have more information about any of our groups or activities please complete the AIM contact 2016
