Activities For Families
We understand that living with a child on the autistic spectrum makes family life different. Our activities are offered with these differences in mind.
Our Playschemes are safe, inclusive, autism-friendly environments for the whole family, not just those on the spectrum or going through diagnosis. Whether or not everyone in the family comes, we ask at least one parent or carer to stay and have responsibility for their children.
Bookings are being made online using this website. Please check the news and events page for booking options. Get in touch to be added to the mailing list if you would like notifications each time registration opens.

Research has shown that Lego®-based Sessions are a fun and effective way to develop different skills for those on the autistic spectrum. We use the standard framework and support participants to work in teams of two or three with adult supervision. Initially, they construct kits by following the instructions and when they’re ready; they design and build models together.
Each series of weekly sessions takes place on Wednesday evenings between 4:45 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. The currently scheduled courses will take place on:
17th January – 28th February
6th March – 1st May (excluding the 3rd and 10th of April)
8th May – 19th June
The cost is £280 for the complete course.
The sessions take place at the Park Centre, 45 Kerr Street, Kirkintilloch, G66 1LF.

We understand that living with someone on the autistic spectrum can be challenging. Problems arise which are not present within normal family life. When faced with these issues, it’s difficult to know where to turn or what to do. Our consultations are for those times, or for anyone who needs a listening ear. Come with a problem and leave with a plan which will be emailed to you afterwards. Consultations are available both in person and online.
The cost is £70 per hour.
