Playconnect Playgroups- For Brisbane Kids with ASD
Playgroups for Kids with ASD
The PlayConnect Playgroups are facilitated playgroups specifically for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or ASD like symptoms aged 0-6 years.
Playconnect playgroups are also for parents
PlayConnect Playgroups also provide support to parents who are not able to access other ASD specific services as they are waiting on a diagnosis, or do not fully meet the criteria for diagnosis. Siblings of children with ASD are also welcome to attend PlayConnect Playgroups.
Playconnect playgroups provide a routine outing
The PlayConnect Playgroups usually meet weekly for 2 hours and are facilitated by a PlayConnect Development Worker. Each playgroup has access to an ASD professional. During the session, parents, carers and children participate in a variety of play activities and experiences. There is no need for referral and families with children with ASD or ASD-like symptoms can join a PlayConnect Playgroup.
Playconnect playgroups are an opportunity for parents who are facing similar challenges to meet other parents for support and friendship. They also provide the chance for successful playdates in a supportive environment of understanding and inclusion.
