online mentoring

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. Our staff have been the young people we serve: Autistic young people are our top priority.

OUR SOCIAL IMPACt

Many Autistic young people have experienced education as a system which focuses on their challenges, not necessarily their strengths. I CAN mentoring programs change the paradigm: we leverage the strengths and interests of Autistic students to build their confidence. Our results suggest our approach is working.
