I CAN Network is a social enterprise established by young people with autism, focused on changing the perception of autism in schools, universities, TAFEs, communities, businesses and government.
Two of their key services include an in-school mentoring program and a residential camp experience. Both aim to build student confidence and simultaneously improve staff understanding of autism.
The focus of I CAN Network programs is to build local capacity and capability of school communities to support students with autism. This aligns closely with the objectives and purpose of the Autism Hub and also demonstrates the value in working across school education sectors and community agencies to provide needed services.
I CAN school mentoring pilot has commenced in three Queensland state schools - Crestmead State School, Stretton State College and Caboolture State High School. These pilot programs commenced term 3 2017 and will run until term 1 2018.
