Champion Autism Network, Inc. (CAN) is a nonprofit autism awareness organization based in Surfside Beach, South Carolina. CAN was founded in 2012 by Becky Large, a business professional and mother of a child on the spectrum. CAN’s goal is to raise Autism Awareness, reduce criticism and judgment and help families with children on the autism spectrum develop a network of like-minded people and supports, locally and beyond.
Our mission is to raise autism awareness, hold sensory/autism friendly events and inspire action to support people with autism and their families.
The autism awareness training presented by the Champion Autism Network was one of the best workshops I have attended in years. The presenter did a great job is presenting the information in an engaging way. I now have a better appreciation of the issues faced by families with a member “on the spectrum.
