About AIM for the Handicapped, Inc.

Adventures in Movement (AIM) was established in 1958 with the goal of assisting individuals with disabilities in reaching their highest potential.  It is a nonprofit organization that works with any and all ages and disabilities to improve a vast area of gross and fine motor skills, as well as speech and concentration issues.  The organization's free movement program, called the AIM Method, focuses on improving motor skills through movement and rehabilitation techniques.  Celebrity supporters of the program include the late Gene Kelly and professional golfer Nancy Lopez.

AIM has a large network of volunteers with which interns work on a water program and other activities.  More often, interns work with the professional staff, mostly in classroom activities surrounding the AIM Method.  Interns learn the method in a workshop and are certified before they can teach on their own.
