AIM-VA was created through a grant from the Virginia Department of Education. AIM-VA is a free service that provides accessible instructional materials to eligible Virginia K-12 students who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and are unable to access traditional print. AIM-VA converts textbooks, workbooks, reading books and teacher-made materials into accessible formats that meet the needs of the individual student. AIM-VA also provides technical assistance and training. With over 500,000 materials housed in its library, AIM-VA works to ensure that students with print disabilities have access to accessible instructional materials.
