Who We Are

ABOUT US

Vision

A world that benefits from embracing Autism.

Mission

To prove what people with Autism can do.

Who we are

The I CAN Network is driving a rethink of Autism, from ‘I Can’t’ to ‘I CAN’. We mentor young people on the Autism Spectrum to live life with an ‘I CAN’ attitude. We bring out the ‘awe’ in AWEtism through education, advocacy and providing opportunities. We build networks across schools, universities, TAFEs, communities, businesses and governments.

Together, we are Australia’s first social enterprise founded by people with Autism. You can read more us in our annual report.

What we do

MENTORING

We run a social enterprise of customised mentoring across camps, schools, universities, TAFEs, businesses and communities.

EDUCATION

We run professional development and manage a speakers agency so that health professionals, education professionals and the wider community can learn about enabling people on the Autism Spectrum.

ADVOCACY

We run campaigns that drive a rethink of Autism so that schools, workplaces and communities can celebrate the individual strengths of people on the Autism Spectrum.

Our Impact

In schools, students on the Autism Spectrum can often feel isolated and have low self esteem. Our mentoring programs build a community around people on the Autism Spectrum that celebrates their individual strengths.
