“For so long, I felt like I had to hide my feelings and authentic experience just to fit in. Autistic people call this masking.
Even when I’m having a hard day, I know I’m going to be supported at CAN. I know I’m going to feel heard. And I know I am going to be welcomed as I am.”
–Sarah Russell, CAN participant, support worker, coach, onsite supervisor and learning facilitator
