online GROUP mentoring

We offer online group mentoring programs for 8 – 22-year-old Autistic people. Our programs have proven to build confidence and social connection in a safe environment. Autistic young people are able to be themselves and are met with acceptance, not judgement. I CAN Imagination Club®, our primary school program, has been designed specifically for participants aged 9 – 11 and is open to non-Autistic participants who may/ may not have a diagnosis or may be unaware of their diagnosis. Please see our KEY DETAILS pdf. for more information or email us at: online@icannetwork.com.au

Our Special Interest Groups cater for participants aged between 8-22 and follow the same structure of our aged based groups. The content, discussions and activities are  themed around the special interest topic(s) and where the special interest topic is based around a game genre, we do need to note, the group is not designed to facilitate playing the actual game during the sessions. 

All I CAN Mentors and staff have completed our child protection training and hold current Working With Children Checks or Blue Cards.
