Australia’s Biggest Autistic Youth Event
AWETISM 2020 Virtual Expo is a free event targeted at Autistic students both primary and secondary, who are aware of their Autism diagnosis. The Expo will showcase the awe-inspiring talents of Autistic students (aged 9-20-years-old) by giving them a platform to present on their unique passions, theories and skills.

As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, I CAN Network has increased the spaces available in our national online group mentoring program. We want to ensure our Autistic kids and teenagers experience connection, belonging and self-esteem during this period of extraordinary disruption.
