About The Participant




DD/MM/YYYY






















Age groups are BROAD on the drop down menus to reduce selection option overload


We will group participants CLOSE TO THEIR AGE BRACKET, please ensure you provide the correct age in the form. 


As a guide we generally group within the following: 8- 13 years, 13-17 years & 17-22 years- this may vary in special interest groups. 


I CAN Groups- 8-22 years old  


I CAN Groups are designed for Autistic children, teens & young adults and cover numerous topics including but not limited to: self esteem, change, transitions, Autistic identity, self-care, relaxation, stress, strengths and many more topics that change on a rotating basis. These groups offer a safe space for participants to connect with peers who they can relate to due to shared experiences. 


I CAN IMAGINATION CLUB-8-13 years old


I CAN Imagination Club® offers a safe, engaging environment where Mentees are encouraged to recognise and celebrate their own strengths. Participants do not need a diagnosis of any sort in order to join and benefit from the I CAN Imagination Club®. They are invited to take part because of their ‘big imaginations’ and we do not explicitly discuss Autism. All topics will be covered in an age-appropriate way and may include but are not limited to: belonging, self-esteem, self-care, social groups, interests, sensory needs, change and transitions.  This is most suited to those in their primary school years. 

I CAN Special Interest Groups (Varied)- 8-22 years old


I CAN Special Interest Groups are designed for Autistic children, teens & young adults to connect to peers and mentors  with the same special interest and share these passions and shared experiences with others in a safe and fun environment. The content will be based on the special interest chosen and the content changes on a rotating basis to cater for ongoing participation across the year.


I CAN LGBTIQA+ 13-22 years old


I CAN LGBTIQA+ is designed for Autistic teens and young adults who identify as LGBTIQA+ (including those who are questioning). This group offers a safe space for participants to connect with peers and mentors who can relate and explore topics including, but not limited to: Autistic & Queer identity, pronouns, Queer culture, belonging,gender, sexuality, social connections, self-care, emotion regulation and sensory needs.



Note: There is no game playing via servers in the Roblox, Minecraft, Dungeon & Dragons, Gaming groups, the content is themed around these interests.
