About us

We would like to introduce you to Au To Know Mentoring, an online technology mentoring service for those who find accessing mainstream services challenging including autism, social anxiety and a wide range of other conditions including mobility and sensory impairments.  Au To Know provides technical instruction and skill building in areas relating to a wide range of digital technologies. We capitalise on our clients’ areas of interest to enhance motivation and commitment while building transferable and employable skills addressing their NDIS goals. Common topics include game development, digital art and music, animation and programming. Our team of enthusiastic and passionate mentors is ready to offer this unique service.

Outcomes we deliver include capacity building in various technology fields with a focus on developing a credible online portfolio of projects that demonstrate skill levels, and expose the learning progression, adding real value to the client’s resume and improving future employment opportunities. We also focus on a delivery philosophy that aims at lowering our client’s anxiety levels as this is when they will do their best work. We provide ongoing support to our mentors, participants and caregivers and submit detailed reports documenting progress towards identified NDIS goals.

Our service is welcomed by people and families struggling with access especially around social anxiety. These factors often lead to disconnection from peers and society in general. For young people, school attendance is often challenging and can exacerbate anxiety. Our mentoring service aims to provide opportunities to relieve these pressures which not only benefits the participant but usually delivers positive outcomes to the whole family.

Lacking focus! Not when you are doing something you love! Or talking to someone who has a passion for the same thing!

You can sign up for our program anywhere in Australia as long as you have internet and a computer!

OTHER BENEFITS

Parents, carers and participants who have engaged in our service have reported a range of improvements including general attitude, engagement, confidence, resilience and self-esteem. These don’t always happen quickly, but our aim is to provide a safe and stimulating environment for these changes to develop.

What people say about our service

Parent of adult client:

I had no idea what to expect when we joined Au To Know Mentoring twelve weeks ago, we were about to embark on a digital learning adventure. My son and his mentor get on well and they share similar interests. It's great to see my son enjoying practising his new skill of digital drawing while chatting about the interests they share. I am so excited that something else special has been added to his life!

Parent of young client:

I would highly recommend this service to anyone. My son has been with Au To Know for over 12 months and each week he is still engaged, excited and progressing at his own pace. His mentor is a positive and encouraging person with a wealth of knowledge, patience and understanding. We look forward to another 12 months with Au To Know and everything it has to offer!

Mother of autistic teens:

Isaac has been mentoring my now 17 and 19 year old kids for over six years. His organic 'no pressure collaborative approach' has helped them relax, engage in their areas of interest and learn new skills. It is my understanding that Isaac's primary focus is on his mentee's emotional wellbeing and enjoyment rather than rushing to finish a project. Anxiety plays a major role in my kid's lives, but with Isaac's mentoring style they are much more likely to enjoy the creative learning process.
