At the AIM Institute for Learning & Research®, we know that literacy is the foundation for success in school and life and that we as educators can do a far better job of helping our children build this foundation.
Our focus is to identify evidence-based best practices in the fields of literacy and language-based learning differences and to put those practices to work.
MAKING LITERACY A PRIORITY ACROSS OUR COMMUNITIES
Delivering World-Class Professional Development and Teacher Training
Our AIM Pathways online teacher training platform is unlocking the power of the Science of Reading in schools and districts across the country with comprehensive IDA-accredited professional learning opportunities and support implementing evidence-based instruction into classroom practice.
Forming Strategic Partnerships to Transform Schools
AIM is the first education partner with the Haskins Global Literacy Hub, an international and interdisciplinary collaborative, bringing together researchers, practitioners, educators and education technology specialists to deliver on the promise of neuroscience-guided reading instruction and remediation and scale the solutions to global challenges using education technology. AIM is an instructional strategies partner with the Read by 4th initiative in Philadelphia and provides access to Teacher and Parent Resources including free community speakers series, workshops and resources to help support all students and families.
Translating Literacy Research into Classroom Practice
We connect top researchers with educators in the field to develop powerful new approaches and put them into practice. New research indicates that the cognitive profile to reading for children with neurobiological bases for learning disabilities is similar to the path of our struggling readers from other varied backgrounds. Our annual Research to Practice Symposium provides thousands of educators from around the world the opportunity to learn from esteemed literacy researchers.
AIM is privileged to work with educators, school, district and state partners helping to provide educators and education leaders with diagnostic and prescriptive tools grounded in the Science of Reading and the support required to apply and use in classroom practice.
AIM Pathways educators and leaders now total more than 20,000 individuals in schools and districts in 29 states and three countries.
