EYECAN CREATIONS Publications
Based in Pictou County, Nova Scotia, is dedicated to creating visual support materials to assist with communication, development of social skills and expectations for daily routines. We develop ready made and customized materials for children, youth and adults. We endeavour to purchase publishing supplies from local businesses. When production staff is needed we have been very fortunate in being able to hire unemployed, underemployed people with disabilities and would hope to be able to continue to do so.

In addition to dedicating 20 of those years to Special Education with a keen interest in working with children with Autism, Jean has served as an Autism Consultant and an Early Interventionist for families with children with special needs.
