“I CAN celebrates diverse thinking and provides the skills for autistic and neurodiverse students to have a voice”
Kyla – Deputy Principal, Coburg North Primary School
We offer weekly one hour group mentoring sessions for up to 16 Autistic students in both primary and secondary schools. Our primary school program I CAN Imagination Club® is a non-Autism specific program and can engage a broad range of students aged 9-12 years who have big imaginations.
FRIDAY OCTOBER 21ST 9:30am – 2:30pm
In 2022, our AWETISM expo will be delivered both face to face at ANZ Docklands as well as online via the vFairs platform. It’s a free online event which showcases Autistic/neurodivergent students who are aware of their Autism diagnosis. Our expo showcases the awe-inspiring talents of Autistic and neurodiverse students and this year our focus is on ‘inclusive schools’ and post-school pathways inviting partnering organisations and experts to speak directly to participants in regards to your future education and career opportunities. By registering you will be able to access the entire expo content for a further 4 weeks. (Until Nov 21st) For event details and to register click on the button below. We hope you can join us.
OUR SOCIAL IMPACt
Our mentoring programs build a community around Autistic students which celebrates their individual strengths. The I CAN mentoring programs leverage the strengths and interests of Autistic students to build their confidence. Our results suggest our approach is working.
Our statistics also provide insight into the challenges Autistic young people face in school and beyond, and highlight the importance of programs that improve Autistic young people’s social connections and self-esteem.
