A born problem-solver, Shannon frequently asks herself what she can do that will make the biggest possible difference. This question has taken her from founding autism education programs to becoming a budding politician. Next up, Prime Minister?

A diagnosis of autism in the family triggered Shannon’s remarkable journey on the road to improving educational quality and outcomes for children with ASD. The ultimate combination of interest, passion and incredible drive have seen her found The Centre for Inclusive Schooling of Children with Autism (CISCA), co-found both the I.D.E.A. Program and the Little Learners Autism Program, as well as take on the role of Deputy Chair of Amaze (Autism Victoria).
