CANadda believes autistic individuals should be included and involved more in the community when it comes to autism and the environment especially when asked to make organisations autism friendly. This includes giving individuals a chance to show their unique differences and to value them no matter where they sit on the spectrum. We want to empower individuals and help them take a more active role to get them out in the community to feel valued and for them to get credit for the work they under take.
It is important to get individuals work recognised as they deserve to feel valued and part of society instead of feeling lonely and isolated. It will help their mental health and social skills as they will feel part of the community. It will help give them self-worth to add to their profile their experiences while learning new skills or enhance skills they are already good at doing.
We will present a certificate for anyone that involves this group of individuals and we have a Autistic Involvement logo to hand over as it is important autistic individuals start to get the credit and recognition for the work they do and the community can recognised that Autistic Individuals have been involved.
