Canucks Autism Network's We CAN Be Friends Program

We CAN Be Friends is a curriculum-based elementary school program provided by the Canucks Autism Network that teaches students the values of friendship, empathy and inclusion by using grade appropriate lesson plans, autism specific resources and awareness raising activities for the entire school. 

Schools can choose how they will access the program – they have the option of accessing the lesson plans online at NO COST or they can also purchase the We CAN Be Friends Kit for $325 which includes the resources and materials needed to teach the lessons (some of the lessons do not require any supplementary resources).
