Members statement: I CAN South West

IMG_0787Last week I attended a meeting of the I CAN South West network, a group founded by Chris Varney in an effort to help young people on the autism spectrum to gather together, be themselves and live life with an I CAN attitude. The south-west network is a regional pilot bringing students from secondary schools across Warrnambool together for mentoring sessions. The pilot is being funded by Lisa and Anthony Boyle, local business owners who saw the program in action in Melbourne. I am honoured to have been asked to be the ambassador to the program and look forward to working with I CAN to see this simple but clever program expanded and continue to change the lives of young people on the autism spectrum.
