Confused about how to consider students’ need for AIM? Stressed about the responsibility of selecting AIM? For those that find themselves in this position, join AIM-VA's implementation manager Cindy George, as we discuss the needs of eligible students when reading.

We are AIM-VA Accessible educational materials (AEM) help to create access to the curriculum for students with dyslexia, learning disabilities, vision or physical challenges, and others. A federally funded AEM program in every state assures that books in alternative formats are provided free of charge to eligible students with disabilities whose education teams take action. The AEM program operates under a legal exception to federal copyright law. Check out the AIM-VA home page to learn more about eligibility in Virginia. In other states, contact a special education teacher, a school administrator or download a list of AEM state contacts..
