On the 30th of November I CAN Network Ltd CEO and AASE Patron, Chris Varney, will be delivering an online presentation facilitating a panel of Autistic young adults discussing strategies they found beneficial for helping schools and Autistic families to work together to support high school and post-school student transitions into 2021. These strategies will respond to the context of COVID-19 which has elevated anxiety levels and challenged people’s preparedness and organisational skills for these somewhat unstructured, yet crucial transitions.

Tickets, purchased through Eventbrite, cost $15 for AASE members and $25 for nonmembers.

Chris Varney is Founder and Chief Enabling Officer of I CAN Network. Growing up with Asperger’s, Chris was inspired to start I CAN from the support his family, schools and mentors gave him, which he shared in his TEDx ‘Autism – How My Unstoppable Mother Proved the Experts Wrong’. In the past year alone, I CAN Network has mentored 1,052 Autistic kids, teenagers and adults nationwide through schools, TAFEs, workplaces, camps and online programs. Since inception in 2013, I CAN Network has employed 34 Autistic people to deliver mentoring programs.

The session will be recorded and made available until the 30th of December for anyone who has purchased a ticket.
