The I CAN Network is Australia’s first social enterprise run by people with Autism. We are for the spectrum, by the spectrum.This makes us unique and offers you the distinct advantage of including a real, autistic voice in your media piece. Our team can provide comments on news of importance to the Autism community across many angles, including education, politics, employment, social affairs, advocacy, health, business, and more. We can work with any medium, including video, audio and textual pieces.
We encourage journalists writing about Autism to consult with a member of the Autism community, preferably a person with Autism, to add an inclusive, personal and realistic dimension to their work. The I CAN Network is well placed to source this voice for you. We also provide guidelines for journalists, bloggers and content creators that can help you to create accurate and fair representations of Autism in the community. These guidelines are based on feedback from Autistic people themselves and are also available in black and white for easier viewing. If you would like a copy of these, please get in touch with us.
Please get in touch with any potential media pieces or angles – we’d love to hear from you!
