Canyon West Guitars is proud to be the home of an effort called the "AIM Project", designed to teach music to young people on the autistic spectrum. They believe that ASD-affected youth have so much to offer our world, and want to give back by providing lessons and opportunities to play in settings with peers. Working hand-in-hand with local developmental agencies, they intend to provide a place where young people can thrive through musical instruction, performance, and interaction.
Donations to help fund this project are welcome, and all such gifts are tax-deductible! Your questions or comments are also invited - just contact them for details, and be sure to like The AIM Project on Facebook!

Do they make good points on calling for insurance reforms, increased support services, and awareness education? Did it lean to much on negative imagery? We'd love to hear your opinion.
