“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.
On Friday October 21st, 2022, we had over 40 presentations from I CAN staff and students also 20 exhibit booths for guests to connect directly with like minded organisations. You can still register until Nov 21st, 2022 to view all of the content, download resources and contact our partners. https://awetism.vfairs.com
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.
