Ep9 - Chris Varney, Founder of the I-Can Network

Chris is a an inspirational guy. Someone who saw a serious gap in the way that young autistic people were being supported to self advocate and see their strengths and what they ‘can do’. In a world where too many young autistic people are told what they can’t do (by often well meaning people), like all young people they need to be encourage to discover and focus on the things they can do.

The I-Can Network works hard to empower young people across primary, secondary and tertiary education settings and also provides a range of speakers and mentoring opportunities.

Check them out and take a look at the various profiles of speakers and staff, many of whom are autistic themselves.
