Play Connect Playgroup

Play Connect Playgroup

PlayConnect Playgroups offer a variety of play-based learning experiences for children with ASD or ASD like characteristics in a safe and welcoming environment.

PlayConnect Playgroups provide an opportunity for families and carers to connect, share their experiences and gain information about ASD related services.

Each week, parents are involved in the sessions by:
Supervising and engaging in play activities with the children.
Suggesting ideas for activities and relevant guest speakers.
Participating in snack time and tidying up time.
Sharing ideas and experiences with other parents.

The PlayConnect Playgroup Development Worker supports the PlayConnect Playgroup for a period of time. After this time, the participating families may elect to continue running the playgroup themselves or they may choose to join another community playgroup, early intervention program or early education service.

It is important to note that PlayConnect is NOT a specialist therapeutic provider.  However, PlayConnect Development Workers can provide families with information about specialist services for children with ASD in the local area.

Friday mornings during school terms, 10-12noon.

Newpin House (Bethany Community Services) 16 Ballarat Road, Hamlyn Heights.
