OVERVIEW

Join I CAN Network’s Victorian Student Expo! We’re inviting the public to come and be inspired by the ideas and talents of our students on the Autism Spectrum.

Our program features inspiring 5 min presentations by Autistic students in which they share their Autistic interests and obsessions in sports, history, gaming, movies, radio, art, drawing, music, lego, etc!

Presentations will be taking place in ANZ Bank Docklands (Core A), 833 Collins St, Docklands from 9.30am (for 10am) until 3pm.

In his current role as Chief Advocate, Tim continues to use his public profile to affect change. In addition, he has authored or co-authored six books and lends his time to a number of community forums and commitees, including the Community Council of Australia, Concern Australia Advisory Group and the Campaign for Australian Aid.

In 2006 Tim was named Victoria’s Australian of the Year; in June 2005 he was made an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO); in 2004, he was named Victorian of the Year; and in 1997 was named as one of Australia’s 100 National Living Treasures.
