Rethinking autism – I CAN Network speaking tour

The Autism Hub in partnership with the I CAN Network – Australia's first social enterprise founded by people with autism - recently took their Rethink Autism Speaking Tour to Brisbane, Logan and the Gold Coast.

Hosted by Chris Varney, founder of the I CAN Network, the speaking tour challenged participants to rethink autism and to cater for the needs and strengths of people with autism.

The speaking tour was a great opportunity for parents, families and educators to learn directly from a young person with autism. The sessions provided an overview of the I CAN Network school mentoring program which will be piloted in Queensland later this year.

To find out more about I CAN or the school mentoring program, please contact the Autism Hub on (07) 3328 6950 or AutismHub@det.qld.gov.au.
